Barry Cryer cancels show after stage fall
Veteran comic Barry Cryer had to abandon a stand-up gig over the weekend after he fell off the stage.
Paramedics were called to the Regal Theatre in Worcestershire, on Saturday night to treat the 77 year old following the tumble, which occurred while he was performing his one-man show.
He was treated for cuts and bruises, and decided to call off the remainder of the performance.
Theatre manager Ian Little says of the incident, "Due to the dazzle from the lights Barry lost sight of the exit into the theatre wings and fell from the side of the stage. Luckily he only only suffered a slight cut to his hand."
A post on the venue's website adds, "Barry Cryer and his management would like to thank the audience for their understanding and warm wishes after the show had to be abandoned."
