There were many sides to the genius of Kenneth Williams. He was a comedic and dramatic actor, a film star, a broadcaster, a director, an author, a writer and diarist, a raconteur, as well as being an instantly recognisable personality in his own right.
His unique and unforgettable individuality has instilled him in the memory of so many; labelled as a national treasure, a legend and, in his own words, “a cult”. He remains a well-known and much loved name over thirty years after his death, with his talents continually being discovered and enjoyed by successive generations who admire his education, wit and prodigious talents as a raconteur, as well as his priceless gift to make us laugh.
This one-hour online presentation will be a celebration of his career delving into a “gander bag” of curiosities across his 40 year career with audio and visual clips, fascinating facts and anecdotes
