Think No Evil Of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams

Written and performed by David Benson

This classic one-man show unlocks the character of one of Britain’s best-loved and most-missed entertainers. In this thrilling and hilarious tour de force we see Carry On star Kenneth Williams at his funniest – and at his most badly behaved. David Benson’s uncanny impersonation was also heard in the acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series, The Private World of Kenneth Williams.

Following its Fringe First winning debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 1996, Think No Evil Of Us played in the West End. Now it returns for a strictly limited twentieth anniversary tour in an updated version.
Theatr Clwyd is Wales’ major drama producing operation, originally built as a Regional Arts Centre.

Already suffering from the cancer that went on to kill him, the great entertainer was kind and lovely all the same, and full of good advice

Story
Tagline
A celebration of the most successful comedies of all time.
Introduction
Since they were created in 1958 they have been the main stay of British Comedy for years. They have touched many generations, bringing joy and laughter to young and old alike. Weather your favourite was Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Hattie Jacques or Barbara Windsor, they never failed to raise a smile.

The What a Carry On website started in 1995 as a labour of love for the British Carry On comedy films from the (mainly) 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. These films had stars like Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Kenneth Connor, Barbara Windsor, Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Jim Dale and many other great actors/comedians. They are very British in nature, and the humour a product of it’s time, but they are fundamentally very, very funny.

They were normally critically panned upon release, but the public loved them and went to see them in droves, and at the height of their popularity they were releasing 1 a year - quite a feat.  The main driving force behind them was producer Peter Rogers and director Gerald Thomas. The two main writer’s were Norman Hudis in the earlier one’s and Talbot Rothwell.
