We speak to Joe Pasquale on being Frank Spencer in the Some Mothers Do ‘Ave’Em on stage, living dangerously and a naughty on-stage habit… What can people expect from the stage show of Some Mothers Do ‘Av ‘Em? Proper family comedy that is set in the 70s and is so funny that you will laugh solidly for two hours. In the original TV series there were a lot of crazy stunts. How about the stage show?
