An Audience with Kenneth Williams
An Audience with Kenneth Williams
by Kenneth Williams
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Cards on the table - I love Kenneth Williams!, 10 Feb. 2016
His comedy is unique - and as with many such individuals not everyone will like him.
Another reviewer has called this cd "dated" - Agreed! Dated and all the better because of it.
This guys comedy is from another time - for many a better time - and his style has not faded.
Buy it if you like Kenneth Williams or if you're interested in what your Mum and Dad used to laugh about!

5.0 out of 5 stars More fabulous fun from the Shat-man!, 1 Feb. 2016

Read by William Shatner, this book is a must. I love his sense of humor and his acerbic asides make it even funnier.
I enjoyed the audiobook so much I bought the book!
Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good book read by a Wonderful Actor!, 26 Jan. 2016
I loved this book. Samuel West's reading adds so much to the characters that it was almost impossible to stop. A very good book - wonderfully well read!

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Rouge in wonderful Rouge's clothing - Brilliant!, 18 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're looking for an opportunity to knock this epic of the classical stage then go ahead! He's a rouge in rouge's clothing and what a brilliant rouge he makes. The history of Robert Stephen's is as much about the loves in his life as the acting but if you wish to separate the two then you may be missing the point. Out of a HARD upbringing this man made himself into someone very special and lived a fascinating life while he did it. If the names Olivier, Brett, Finney .... and every other RSC/60s-80s stage actor, mean anything to you then read this. You'll probably want to read it again.... like I did.

This work is right up there with it's partner volume - Catching Life by the Throat
Genius poetry performed by brilliant actors... is there any more you could want?
If you are looking for perfect audio / with no ambient noise, then look elsewhere. You can smell the greasepaint on these disks and they are sooo much better for that! A Massive thanks to Josephine Hart!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant new point of view from over the pond - Audiobook review, 11 Dec. 2015

AUDIOBOOK review - I came to this without any knowledge of the author and left looking impatiently for the next book from Mr Novak. Funny, shocking and beautifully performed (by some well known people) this audiobook is never far from my cd player. Brilliant work... now where's the next one!

Griff Rhys Jones? Not the Nine O'clock News? A whole variety of natural history/Welsh TV?
The best thing about this autobiography was that is gave a real insight into the life of an early comedy celebrity.
Very hard to find but definitely worth it if you do!


Catching Life By The Throat: How to Read Poetry and Why
Catching Life By The Throat: How to Read Poetry and Why
by Josephine Hart
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars This recording is for those who are open-minded enough to want to hear great voices reading great poetry, 27 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This recording should be part of the national curriculum!

Josephine Hart puts it out there from the start - she loves poetry!
I must say she has done more for poetry in this recording, and the subsequent recording - Words that Burn - than almost any other person in the 20th Century. Poetry is essentially oral and aural! The writing down of poems is more a necessary evil, or aide memoir, than anything essential.

This recording is for those who are open-minded enough to want to hear great voices reading great poetry. You will feel like you're in the room with these great actors.
If you want great audio quality then there are hundreds of other recordings out there.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What's not to like about this? It's a BBC dramatization so it's going to be great! It's by a much under-read author so it's great to be able to have an opinion on this wonderful work. It's very hard to find - so thanks goes to the lovely chap who sold it to me!
