Actor Alex Lowe enjoyed big success with comic creation Clinton Baptiste when the character first appeared more than 20 years ago in Peter Kay’s award-winning television series, Phoenix Nights. 
A tacky and inept clairvoyant, medium & psychic, Baptiste was Kay’s brainchild but has since been fleshed-out further by the man who plays him. 

Despite the serious amount of work he’s put into developing the character, Alex remains appreciative of Clinton’s origin: “The fact that he‘s from Phoenix Nights is great! It’s like having a head start, because I already feel four-nil up before I even get on stage, and I know the audience is going to laugh.”
