As Christmas approaches, DaisyChain PR caught up with comedian and former pantomime king, Eddie Large
DaisyChain PR boasts some great supporters and we thought it was a nice idea to find out what makes them tick and share that with you. First up in our series of Q&As is comedian Eddie Large.
The comic, best known as a part of the double act Little and Large with Syd Little, is a warm, larger-than-life character who lives in Portishead with his very lovely wife.
Eddie, who you’ll often find strolling along Portishead Marina or catching a show at The Bristol Hippodrome, is looking and feeling better than ever following his heart transplant in 2003. He is a passionate supporter of organ donation and he has joined the campaign for everyone to become a potential donor.
Despite retiring, he can’t resist the smell of the greasepaint and still makes one-off appearances on stage and screen. Eddie and Syd have recorded a programme for Channel 5 and will be appearing on BBC1’s Pointless Celebrities in the new year – plus a couple more high profile TV shows which are still under wraps!
