Clive studied drama/theatre at Birmingham University.
He began his musical journey touring 'out of the back of a van' performing variety shows wherever a few were gathered. After a few years in repertory theatre where his work was educational, Clive embarked on lots of varied theatre work. Then in the early nineties he toured with 'Return To The Forbidden Planet'.
He accompanied poet Pam Ayers on piano when she toured Australia. During their visit they appeared at the Sydney Opera House. Technical problems arose and Pam had to leave the stage leaving Clive to hold the fort unrehearsed and ad-libbing in front of a packed Aussie audience.
Back in the U.K, Clive did some freelance work for Van Morrison before joining TBTD in 2000. All his multi-talents are put to good use in the show; acting and playing a variety of instruments as well as being the shows vocal arranger.
