Jez has just finished another 68 shows at The Carriageworks Theatre, Leeds in Jack and the Beanstalk. He is delighted and proud it was another Box Office record panto run. He was playing alongside the brilliantly talented Danny Colligan and the ridiculously sharp and funny Myra DuBois.

He has played 'Scarecrow' in Shone Productions tour of 'The Wizard of Oz' with Anna Williamson.
But the most nervous he has ever been was watching two of showbiz's greats walk out onto the set for a line run "To me To you!!!" Jez played a highjacked coachman opposite Paul and Barry Chuckle in 'Chucklevision'.
