Publisher's Summary

In this documentary portrait of Kenneth Williams, who died in 1988, the much-loved comedy actor's diaries are drawn upon to illustrate his life and career. David Benson, who won acclaim for his one-man show in which he portrayed Kenneth Williams, reads extracts from the diaries, while archive audio clips from such programmes as Round the Horne and Beyond Out Ken illustrate the madcap versatility of Williams the performer. This Radio Collection version features material additional to the original Radio 4 broadcast.

    "brilliant"

    I am intrigued by Williams persona and this audiobook made insightful and easy listening. The excerpts from interviews and radio shows integrate perfectly with the commentary which reveals a lonely but frank and well meaning man with a genius for cynical observation. I wish I had been part of this era and artistic circle. A good account of a very British life, well actually a very London life at that.

    "excellent great listen in depth and sad out look"

    a great read with a sad comedian in his personal life but projects the happier side of his identity in the public eye.
