Product description

About the Author

Wes Butters was himself destined for great things, landing the prestigious UK Top 40 chart show on BBC Radio 1 at just 23. But after two years his contract was not renewed and he has spent subsequent years having to shoo away the albatross and resist being typecast as the chart kid. He has since won numerous awards, including a Sony, for his commercial radio work and has produced and presented a number of documentaries for BBC Radio 4 including The Pain of Laughter (on both Kenneth Williams and Charles Hawtrey) and Twice Ken is Plenty. In 2008, Wes wrote Kenneth Williams Unseen with Russell Davies ( Enthralling, an unmissable account of a comedian who teetered on the brink of all-out lunacy Roger Lewis, Sunday Express) and is currently developing Whatshisname into a screenplay.
