‘They didn’t come funnier than Jethro’

OF all the celebrities I’ve met and photographed, they didn’t come any funnier than Cornwall’s very own comedian Jethro.

I managed to see him several times in Lyme Regis as well as at his stables, where he showed me around a quick look at some of his top class horses.

As well as being funny he was quick to throw his hat in the ring to help farmers via the Western Morning News’ ‘Green Welly’ collection, caused by the foot and mouth disaster at the beginning of this century.

Jethro used to wear some sort of pirate outfit in his early days and that’s what he wore at the Marine Theatre and the Royal Lion.

Driving along listening to Jethro was almost dangerous as joke after joke had you in stitches.

RIP Jethro.
