  1. Tarby appeared on both HIGNFY and Room 101 at the time, and it looked like his agent had seen what a huge success Bob Monkhouse had been on those shows, managing to totally reinvent himself as a contemporary comedy star, and wanted Tarby to go along the same route. Unfortunately, Tarby was too old school to convince in that role, and it never really worked. He did a pilot for a sports-themed comedy show for the Beeb in 2000 which was a right flop, and that was the end of Tarby the alternative comedian.
