Comedian Jethro had £3 million fortune when he died from Covid

COMEDIAN Jethro was sitting on a £3million fortune when he died, his latest accounts show.

The Cornish funnyman — real name Geoffrey Rowe — had close to £500,000 sitting in his company coffers.


Jethro Enterprises Ltd also had financial assets, including properties, of £2.5million for 2021.

The accounts show he was still raking in the cash right until his death on Tuesday from Covid at the age of 73.

The business paid £135,000 in corporation tax in 2021 and 2020, meaning he earned about £674,000 in that time.

Jethro retired in 2020 after 50 years performing.

A family statement announcing his death said: “Jethro leaves life partner Jennie, sons Jesse and Lanyon, step-daughter Sarah, and much-loved grandchildren."
