Eamonn is originally from Manchester but now lives in Bedford. He recently played Reg & Brian in THE FULL MONTY which enjoyed a sellout successful National Tour and a short run at The Noel Coward Theatre, where it was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. It didn’t win, and closed early, but you can’t have everything. I mean, where would you keep it?
Other Theatre includes: Up n Under, Frankenstein, Gold, September in the Rain, Departures, A Christmas Carol, When Santa got Stuck in the Fridge & Snow White, all for Hull Truck Theatre:
Neville’s Island, When we are Married, Two, April in Paris, Derby McQueen, The Hare and the Tortoise & The Dumb Waiter for York Theatre Royal: Blue Remembered Hills for Dukes Theatre, Lancaster: Fungus the Bogeyman for Pilot Theatre. Eamonn has written and toured two solo shows, When I was Ten I could Fly, and The Meaning of Riff-the promo film for this one is still online.

Eamonn has played a wide selection of Coppers, security guards and workmen in episodes of Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Doctors, The Bill etc as well as doing dozens of commercials for everything from Magner’s Cider to the Football Pools in Denmark. Most recently Eamonn appeared in a leaflet for the NHS as a taxi driver with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He’s in Showbusiness for the glamour. This will be his first time as a Dame, but not the first time he’s worn a dress.
