    "Brilliant character comedy by a true great"

    This show captures comedian Graham Fellows in the guise of his most beloved characters, singer songer writer John Shuttleworth with his neighbour & sole agent Ken Worthington. The show includes John's thoughts on modern culture and his best known songs; with subjects ranging from pigeons, bounty bars and a man who lives in a house by a motor way. It's all delivered perfectly to an appreciative audience. Listeners new to Graham Fellows may want to track down collections of one of the excellent BBC radio series The Shuttleworths or Radio Shuttleworth before buying this live recording as these serve as better introductions. However, One foot in the gravy is an excellent show and well worth your attention.

    "A real Faberge egg of British comedy..."

    There are many excellent British comedians plying their trade, but none have constructed a world so perfectly detailed as Graham Fellows has done for his creation, John Shuttleworth. This is mega-detailed character comedy, all the tiny details are here: his wife, his life, his loves and hates. Oh, and his next door neighbour and sole agent Ken Worthington.

    This is all brought to life on this live document, live performances being something Mr. Shuttleworth is very good and highly experienced at. It is genuinely funny and if you don't get this, you'll kick yourself. It really is that good, production-wise, very well recorded and I promise, a real 5 star item, especially if you like comedy that isn't scatological, political and only very very rarely cruel.

    Best experienced whilst supping a large mug of 'campuccino' and chomping on a gypsy cream biscuit.

    "The working man's Alan Bennett !"

    It seems hard to believe, listening to Graham Fellows as John Shuttleworth, that he was once the lead singer of the group Jilted John, whose major hit insisted that "Gordon is a moron" !
    In his current role he makes banal and long-winded comments on ordinary, everyday subjects that interest him, delivered in a dry, mock-sincere northern UK accent. It is a distinctly English style of humour, and very funny indeed. A working man's Alan Bennett, possibly. In some respects he reminds you of Tony Hancocks droll observations on daily life in Britain.
    There are no jokes, no rants, no stories with a punchline. It isn't situation comedy. It's Mr Shuttleworth's Diary, and you either love it or hate it. I love it.
