Cult Figure: Kenneth Williams
Written and Performed by Colin Elmer
Directed by Tim Astley
Kenneth Williams is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable faces (and voices) in British comedy history. A household name thanks to his work on Hancock’s Half Hour, Round the Horne and a staggering twenty-five Carry On films, his career is the stuff of comedy legend.
Aside from these wonderfully written films and programmes, Williams was just as comfortable entertaining in his own words, be it on Just a Minute or the many chat shows on which he was a frequent and masterful guest. This brand new production tells the great man’s story in his own words using some of the most hilarious and poignant stories and anecdotes he shared throughout his life.
"a performance which relies on finely-observed respect rather than pure mimicry"
Get West London on 'Round the Horne'
Colin Elmer who starred as Williams in the 50th Anniversary Tour of Round the Horne brings the great man to life in both body, voice and spirit, evoking the sense of mischief and naughtiness that became KennethWilliams’trademark and providing an entertaining insight into the man behind the mask.
So prepare for an evening of hilarity, sincerity and plenty of messing about as we tell the story of this true cult figure.
