Barry From Watford
Barry from Watford is one of the most unique callers Iain Lee has on his LBC radio show. Barry has been calling Iain for a while now and he's one of the most popular callers. Despite these regular calls there is little information known about Barry. But from various sources here we give you some details about Barry and his family, his neighbours, some video clips of Barry on TV and the stand up comedy shows he currently does.
Barry from Watford's full name is Barry St Michael, an 81 year old who lives in a small block of flats in Watford. He lives there with wife Margaret St Michael , they have a son called David and two grandchildren. Barry and Margaret have an up and down relationship that has involved some temporary separations. One of which was caused by Barry commenting to Margaret that she had a slow eye and wobbly face. Another was when Margaret ran off with a Pakistani gentleman from a building society. Barry is a vegetarian as of 2003 and he won't touch meat apart from a bacon sandwich now and then. Sometimes he'll also have a bit of chicken and is a bit impartial to veal. And maybe the occasional steak on a Sunday, but apart from that he will not touch meat.
Barry from Watford is good friends with his neighbours in the block of flats where he lives. One of those friends is Simon Clancy who Barry will often ask to look after his allotment while he's away. Simon manages to do a good job as he's often able to get Barry's plums to swell to a really good size on his return. Another neighbour is Jean Nugent who set Barry up on a "date" with a friend called Irene during a separation with Margaret. There was a problem with the date where Irene had too many radishes from the salad bar and "blew off". This disgusted Barry especially when she raised herself up on one hand and let another one go.
So unique and entertaining is the personality of Barry St Michael that he is starting to get television work . He's introduced as Barry from Watford and appeared on BBC 4's "Late Edition". This programme was a topical comedy chat show which ran for 2 series from 2005 to 2006. Barry appeared on several of the shows as a guest and by doing some outside reporting for the show. The following clips feature Barry in his reporting roles.
Barry from Watford has actually gone on the road by doing some stand up comedy shows such as one at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2006. This was a comedy show that featured Barry talking to the audience about his life and replaying some of his most popular LBC calls. There are some very positive reviews of the show including a recommendation for it to be nominated for the Perrier award. Barry is performing these shows again in March 2007 in North London and tickets are available. Here you can find more details: Barry from Watford comedy show 2007.
Overall Barry from Watford is one of the stars of the Iain Lee LBC radio show. You look forward to him coming on and smile when you hear him being introduced. With Barry you never know what peculiar story or event he wants to relay to Iain and it often makes you laugh out loud . Just the way he speaks is amusing in itself. The stories he phones in with have to rank as some of the best LBC calls in terms of humour. This man deserves a regular slot on radio or television as long as we still get a dose of Barry on LBC.
