Canned Carrott Classic TV Show
A canned product that will never surpass its sell-by-date. Canned Carrott featured two of Jasper's most popular creations "Wiggy" and "The Detectives", the cop parody with actor Robert Powell.
Canned Carrott Fan Tributes13 Jim from East Mids: Jasper Carrott will always be remembered for his ability to turn every day events into works of comic genius! When I first saw Wiggy baking his cake it was so reminiscent of my own early cooking attempts that I was helpless with laughter for days afterwards! A true entertainer and a natural comedian, very sorely missed on TV by all who knew and loved his shows! BRING BACK JASPER CARROTT TV NEEDS HIM!
12 Edward Belton from Crawley west sussex: My fav bit of carrot was the Wiggie bakes a cake. It is by far the funniest thing I have every seen.
11 Leigh Mathers from Sutton Coldfield: I love Jasper to bits and this was a great series. My favourite bits were The Detectives (which of course spawned a series in its own right) and the spoof adverts he used to do.
10 Kay from Nottingham: Grew up watching Canned Carrot and learned you don't need to swear to be funny. Saw Jasper perform live and was blown away. Wiggy and the Detective sketches are my favourites!
9 sarah from watnall: jasper carrott is great. he makes me laugh and leaves me with a smile on my face.
8 Michelle Pilling from Burnley: His tales of going to Hong Kong, I laugh so much my tummy was sore.
One of the best British comics we have.
7 Carolyn Benson from Wales: You CAN'T listen to his jokes & not laugh, it's impossible!!! he is my hero & I love the way the jokes are so accurate to real life, E.G. Why women can't tell jokes properly & why men can't wrap presents, insomniacs (sorry if i spellt that wrong!), &'vegetarian cars. It' all pure class & anyone who doesn't find him funny can't possibly have a sense of humor!
6 Roger Swift from Teflord: Jasper is the funniest man alive, No one has ever made me laugh as much as he had. Ive been a fan ever since I was a kid!!!!!!!!!!!!
5 Shelagh from Perth: What is Jasper's date of birth - the humour is soooo like my husband's that I am assumming between 1945-1949
4 M Darnell from Ely: I want to know his real name
for a quiz?
3 Paul Bennett from Stafford: I like this program because i am a huge fan of Jasper Carrot and think he is one of the best comedians this country has ever produced. He talks about things that happen in a very funny way and think he should return to making more shows like this classic comedy show,
2 Mark Barber from Leigh: Carrot is just one of those comedians whose jokes are old but never stale as they reflect real life so closely
1 Anthony Martin from Stranraer: Jasper the brummie, incredibly funny, exploring the mind, restructures what he finds, A loveable chap, Who's cheeky, sharp witts, is the best tonic ever, To keep me in fits !
