CABARET AND MUSIC HALL

CABARET and MUSIC HALL
I have been performing in Music Hall and Variety for
almost as long as I have been acting.
I began, as did so many other actors, at Aline Waites'
celebrated Aba Daba Music Hall at The Pindar Of Wakefield (now The
Water Rat) in Grays Inn Road. It is there I first performed a number
with which I have since become inextricably associated - The Galloping
Major! With the help of several sturdy riding crops, I have been striking
terror into audiences' hearts with it ever since!
Aline Waites also gave me my first chance to perform as Chairman.
I was fortunate to have as role models some great Chairmen of that
time, among them Peter Spraggon, Geoffrey Robinson and Robin Hunter.
Since those early days I have become an established Chairman in my
own right, performing at the Players Theatre, and for such well-known
companies as Ian Liston's Hiss & Boo, Vincent Hayes' Brick Lane
and Deirdre Dee's Song and Supper Music Halls.
I have been in the Chair for such Variety stars as
Roy Hudd, Ben Warriss, Danny La Rue, Russ Conway, Edmund Hockridge,
Barbara Windsor in major theatres all over the UK, as well as producing
my own Music Halls in Britain and the USA.
I have also appeared in Cabaret and on Cruises, notably
for Cunard, directed by Jeff Clarke under the auspices of Gillian
Humphrey's Concordia Company, performing regulary on the QE2, Seabourne
Sun and Caronia. A fantastic way to see the world!
