I am currently looking for recordings of Michael Barrymore. I am looking for his appearances on My Kind Of People, Barrymore on Broadway, My Kind of Music, Barrymore, Kids Say The Funniest Things, Bob Martin Strike it Lucky or any other recordings. If anyone on here has an old Vhs tape that contains a Barrymore show on them, would you be willing to part with or copy them, I will pay good money for recordings of Michael Barrymore shows from the 80s, 90s and 2000s. Please help.

Why do I think you're a "researcher" doing a Channel 4/5 hatchet job on Barrymore? (Joined yesterday?) Bit of a lazy way to earn your living!

I have his autograph if you want it - on a programme when I saw him in Nottingham Theatre Royal in the '80s

It was Barrymore who came up with the original idea for the reality show "Splash"

I'd love to take that off your hands, how much are you looking for? I'll give you a good price.

I disagree, he was very popular in his day and was the king of Itv. He was adored by all generations and had the ability to make people laugh. I'm sure your opinion would be totally different if the Lubbock incident hadn't have happened.

Always a smug nasty individual.
His "comedy" consisted of ripping the pee out of people who could not answer back

Vile man thankfully no longer invading our screens

I could never stand him even before the Lubbock business.

A comic who made his living using audience members as a part of his act and humiliating them onstage.

Still, each to his own.....

If the Lubbock business hadn't happened, would he still be around today?

Even if it hadn't, I think his style of comedy would be considered outdated these days and he wouldn't be on TV any more.

I remember the video that circulated of him taking the mic out of Susan Boyle whilst she was singing surfaced

Er, was I talking about 'rewriting history'? He's a comedian (well, in the eyes of some ) not a national figure. I don't happen to like him or his style of comedy which was based on the humiliation of audience members . So sue me.

As I said, even if the Lubbock affair hadn't happened, I doubt he'd be on TV today as his act and comedy style are out dated.

Because back in the day his comedy was in fashion and he was liked by the public.

I think he'd be battling personal demons regardless of the Lubbock business. He seems to have found it hard to come to terms with his sexuality - if indeed he is gay, and seems to have had alcohol problems too.

He seemed a bit unstable when he did Celebrity Big Brother

He was definitely a big star at the time - I was trying to remember the name of the show he used to do on ITV at the weekends where he had warm up acts that were shown, one of which was Freddie Star. I'm thinking early to mid 90s at the latest...anyone any idea what it was called? I'm thinking it might have been on a Sunday evening (like before or after Heartbeat ) and there was alot of audience participation and I remember a really long sketch with Barrymore (or/and maybe a dance troupe or something?) involving some zany song to do with moles lol which isn't much to go on but I was fairly young at the time and ended up in fits of giggles - thats all I can remember(!). It was either that or Russ Abbot but im pretty sure it was Barrymore, Abbot was on a Monday evening wasn't he?

I remember watching a few episodes of whichever show that was but I don't have any recordings, sorry... (don't mind me(!)).
