A great friend of the late Lytham based entertainer Les Dawson, he has appeared on numerous shows and enjoyed the success of multiple live theatre tours and summer season shows.

Speaking of his return to the stage, following a year in which the industry has been blighted by the Covid 19 pandemic, he told his fans on Twitter, "Let's hope that we can open up later this month.

"Over a year without work has been a disaster for many entertainers. Enquiries and bookings are slowly coming in, but bookers are still holding back just in case they have to cancel after spending money on promoting their events."

Clinton Baptiste, the character played by actor Alex Lowe, is a clairvoyant, medium and psychic best known for his appearances on Peter Kay's award winning Phoenix Nights.

Baptiste will guide audiences through a paranormal sensation, with a hilarious yet touching journey through his life, out the other side and beyond the Celestial Curtains.

Now 18 years after the show aired, he returns to the stage to conjure up his extraordinary powers for a new generation.
