With the end of the Carry on films in 1978 [discounting Carry on Columbus], Kenneth Williams' career moved towards a series of appearances in quiz and chat shows. These shows gave Williams the platform on which to show off his brilliant talents in telling showbiz stories which were partly autobiographical and partly exaggeration. In 'An Audience With Kenneth Williams', this is the ultimate Williams performance as a first-rate raconteur as he tells his classic tales and jokes in front of the leading celebrities of the early 1980's.

An Audience With Kenneth Williams is great throughout and offers us an hour in the company of one of Britain's great comic actors. Although the show has been released before on DVD, this is by far the superior release and merits its 'Special Edition' label due to the higher quality version of the show, which a sharp picture and sound as well as some unexpected extras in the form of three interviews from various chat shows from the 1970's and 1980's. The best interview is with Russell Harty with Williams on top form.

Overall, this is a fine release and perfect for any Kenneth Williams fan.

I bought this on a whim and am really glad i did. i watched it completely amused and well, sort of nostalgic.
He is very funny and surprisingly warm considering the press he had at the end of his life depicting an embittered isolated man. This really does show of his amazing storytelling abilities. I will watch this again. What is so masterful about his performance is that he doesnt go 'over the top' as he had a tendancy to do on some of the chat shows. It's nicely done....and very well observed

Still a personality all these years on - This DVD brings four 1970's programs together showing the wit of Kenny in his heyday. Video and sound quality is average for the time period involved. Good value - content and length wise.

Who doesn't love Kenneth Williams..? An audience with Kenneth Williams is the only recorded 'stand up' performance of the great man. Taking you through his army days, early appearances in REP right through to the Carry On films from which he became a household name. The celebrity audience aid his anecdotes with questions to bring more hilarious answers. Complete with a couple of songs this show is just superb. The extras are also very good featuring a few of Kenneth's appearances on chat shows. Fantastic..!

I am a big Kenneth Williams fan, found this and the diaries on here along with other great items. Had no idea there was a special edition with bonus interviews so that was brilliant. Clearly never used, arrived earlier than expected.

This was another DVD I tried to find in shops for ages but could never get hold of, so imagine how pleased I was to find it here on Amazon! If you enjoy watching a much-missed comedy actor and raconteur at the peak of his career then I advise you buy this, especially as it's one of the very best 'An Audience With...' shows produced by LWT in the 1980s and 90s. Perhaps the most poignant aspect of this show is that sadly, like the star himself, many of the famous faces in the celebrity audience are no longer with us (Gordon Jackson, Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw, Roy Kinnear), but on the plus side there are hilarious stories and anecdotes right from the very start (my personal favourite being when KW relates what happened when he met Dame Edith Evans and they when to a restaurant together).

A comedy classic, and well worth catching again 29 years after its' original broadcast.

I have adored this man from a young age and this DVD doesn't disappoint for true fans of The master with a dripping tongue an sardonic wit. Yes, the context is somewhat dated but that all part of the Williams charm.
