answers here to the questions most asked through this
website and all of our social media spaces. This may
help you find an answer to your question immediately and
not have Bobby or the person who answers the e-mail from
the site feeling terrible if they are busy and canít get
to reply to your question straight away ;-))
Are Bobby and Tommy still in touch?
course. As this website clearly shows, Bobby and Tommy
are still together and working all year round every year
playing all around the country and still doing panto
every single year.
Why arenít C & B on the TV any more? I never see them,
where are they working if theyíre not on the TV?
because C & B arenít on the TV together as they once
were doesnít mean that they donít work together or that
the public donít get to see them perform.
Bobby generally tour the country with a couple of
different shows per year in theatres all around the
country. They also tour the country giving gospel shows
in churches and different places around the UK and panto
has been in Lincoln for the past 3 years.
So how do I find out where and when they are on and get
to go and see them?
can keep a look out at your local theatre, if they have
a newsletter, sign up for that, you never know . . . or
you could simply
out this page!
Whatís going on with Cannon & Ball?
this out, check out their website at
www.cannonandball.com and also sign up for their
newsletter which is published (e-mailed) periodically
throughout the year.
How do I contact Cannon and Ball?
why you want to contact them?
contact is business related and is about availability
for bookings and personal appearances and the such,
please contact their management about this here:
3rd Floor, 161 Drury Lane
0207 430 5400
some general contact, there is a contact form on the
website, as well as the e-mail address to use at any
time. If itís something more open and regular and
nothing that will take up their time reading lots of
e-mail if itís not required . . . you can use their
social media presences to achieve contact.
I see lots of different Cannon and Ball pages online
through social media, how do I know which are the real
know as we shall tell you here:
a Facebook page for quite some years this can be found
also an official Bobby Ball Fan Page, this can he found
BB Fan Page!
other pages and groups on there for Bobby, for Tommy and
for the pair of them but this is the only official one.
Does Tommy have a Facebook profile?
does not use the net as Bobby does and therefore any
profile pages that you see online for Tommy ARE all fake
ones. Do not be fooled into believing that they are
love his Twitter. He can be found over there at
www.twitter.com/TheBobbyBall and his name over there
for contact is @TheBobbyBall.
Does Tommy do the Twitter thing?
as with Facebook . . . No! Sorry. If he ever changes
his mind we will let you know.
Official C & B website has a chat session every
Wednesday night at 8pm where fans can always decide to
turn up for a natter if they fancy it. Whenever he can
manage it, Bobby does call in and spend the evening with
us but this shall be less than normal over the busy
periods with being out working and away from home. Do
call in though, whoever is in there when you arrive will
be nice to you and give you a warm welcome, theyíre a

been overlooked slightly over the past couple of years
with the emergence of Twitter and Facebook, arenít
visited half as much as they used to be which is quite
sad. But maybe we can change that. Please do feel free
to visit and contribute and if we all do the same, we
may well get them buzzing again!
How can I get an autograph from Bobby & Tommy?
C & B are
some of the most accommodating guys where their fans are
concerned. If met at a gig and asked, itís very rare
they would ever turn anyone away. There are often
signing tables at gigs and if this is the case at a gig
youíre at, then you will surely be lucky and will get
If this is
not possible, please do send your request through to
www.cannonandball.com and we will see what we can
so. No guarantees, but we will always do our best.
Bobby, I see that you are now doing more acting, when
will we next see you on the TV?
regularly busying himself with his acting projects and
he does tell everyone when he is filming or planning
anything on his Twitter but whenever there is any firm,
solid news about the dates of his shows being aired, the
news will be displayed on the Facebook page, Twitter and
the websites news section. Do keep checking the news
page for anything that you may want to know about.
Bobby, because you are doing more acting and people are
talking about you more as an individual, does this mean
you will break up Cannon and Ball and concentrate your
time on acting?
will not happen. We are almost at the landmark of Bobby
and Tommy hitting the 50 year mark together, this will
never be jeopardised. They are a team, have always been
a team and will carry on being a team as long as they
Who are these Harper people you keep Tweeting about?
Brothers are a comedy vocal duo who are absolutely
hilarious, they are making a great name for themselves
nationally and internationally, and are carving out a
fantastic career for themselves. Oh yeah, they also
happen to be Bobbyís sons!
Bobby, why are you always Re-Tweeting everyoneís general
requests on Twitter? It fills up my timeline with
things I donít necessarily want to see!
thinks that if someone takes the time to message him,
itís only polite to answer if he can or if people ask
for a re-tweet, that it is rude not to. He doesnít want
to fill up anyoneís timeline with anything they donít
want to see but he wants to be as fair to everyone who
follows him as possible. You might be one of the ones
who doesnít want to see his re-tweets but just think, if
it was you who actually wanted one, youíd probably get
it. He is too sweet for his own good sometimes and will
never please all of the people all of the time!
would be nice though for Bobby to have some nice
challenging questions and conversations from/with people
who are genuinely interested and interesting. Please do
talk to him and ask him things other than whether he
will re-tweet your message to get one over on your
sister/aunty/brothersís best friend. Heís a really
interesting guy and has a lot to say! Give him a chance
to say it!
Why arenít your old shows on the TV, there are tons of
other repeats on?
never been picked up by the channels which now show so
many old programmes on repeat but never fear, there are
plenty of chances to be able to see C & B in your own
home . .
DVD started to release the old ITV Cannon & Ball Shows
in a completely uncut format recently and after
releasing series one, two and three up until now, the
fourth series is due to be released in February. These
can be bought directly form Network DVD or any other
online retailer such as Amazon or play.com.
I used to love your movie Boys In Blue, I donít have my
video tape any longer though, do you have a copy?
need your old video tape or to borrow one from Bobby or
Tommy. Boys In Blue is available in online stores such
as Amazon and play.com at really reasonable prices so
grab yourself a copy soon and remember all the bits you
had forgotten you loved!
I used to have your albums when I was younger, where can
I get a copy of them now?
no digital versions widely available of these albums Iím
afraid. They do occasionally turn up in old record
shops, charity shops and supermarkets but possibly the
best way to find them is to connect with other fans who
might have spare copies or old memorabilia that they
donít need any longer.
Can I buy official Cannon & Ball merchandise?
There is a
small selection of merchandise on the website,
cannonandball.com Ė at the moment this is payable for by
cheque only but we may well look into changing that at
Occasionally we do create a T-Shirt sweep where a set of
t-shirts are offered to regular visitors. These are
limited and only happen from time to time.
