Back to Spare Tyre Experiences

Bernard

I started with the Spare Tyre group in autumn 2000. I was getting fed up being indoors all the time listening to radio or watching TV or reading. I saw Spare Tyre give a performance in Kilburn. They were doing sketches to try to get new members. I thought, seems like something different, might as well try it.

What I like is that I can meet people and get to know them. When I get up and sing and perform I’m nervous but I get into it. It’s got easier over the years. I remember things much more easily. At the beginning I just had a few lines, now I have bigger parts. It shows what a difference getting into something makes.

I’ve liked every character I’ve played and I’ve been married over 6 times in the shows. It’s interesting for me cause I’ve never been married. It’s given me a chance to see what I’ve missed!
