Serviced Apartment in London for Alan Carr in November.

On 5th November 2011 Alan Carr will arrive in London for the last leg of his ‘Spexy Beast’ tour. He will be playing at the O2 Arena, one of the largest venues for comedy in the city. With hundreds, possibly thousands, probably not millions expected to flock to London to witness the event, be sure to book your accommodation early so as not to be disappointed. Getting a serviced apartment in London wouldn’t be a bad an idea as you might think as hotels aren’t that good really. Serviced apartments are good in fact. You can quote me on that.

Alan Carr first rose to prominence along with Justin Lee Collins on the successful TV show Friday Night Project which later became Sunday Night Project. He has seen more fame as the individual host of Alan Carr: Chatty Man. Some have described him as ‘an edgy, actually gay, Micheal McIntyre’ other as ‘the on off the Friday Night Project who wasn’t fat.’ Although his sexuality is often seen as a key USP in his act and persona, Carr doesn’t see it as a focal point of his act, once saying “I just think gay people need to get over themselves. Just because you’re gay and on the telly doesn’t mean you’re a role model. I’m just a comedian. That’s all I am. … What am I meant to do? I don’t talk about being gay and I think what better equality for gays than that?” Truer words have never been spoken. Take a bow son.

Speaking of football clichés, a little known fact is that Alan Carr’s father, Graham Carr, is a former professional footballer and manager. He now works at Newcastle United as a head scout since February 2010 and those nearly 2 years he has forged an excellent reputation as keen spotter of talent. Before he arrived at Newcastle the club had been in turmoil after relegation to the Championship and years of being known for defensive errors and almost pantomime events surrounding the team. Currently the team sit 4th in the Premier League and have a revamped team full of young exciting talent and it seems the days of the ‘Newcastle Circus’ are a thing of the past. Obviously a lot of the is praise should be directed at new manager Alan Pardew, however some of the signings that have arrived at St. James Park have been very good buys heavily influenced by Carr. The club sold their star players Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton who seemed to leave an unfillable hole in the team, however the club also got rid of a lot of baggage off the pitch. They have replaced them with a host of young talented French talent, mostly accredited to Graham Carr. Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa, Mehdi Abeid, Sylvain Marveaux and Cheick Tiote have arrived at the club and made a big difference settling in instantly.
