2015 is an exciting year already. Back in Oct, I auditioned for the role of Dudley Moore, a man I adored and idolised for so many years. I can confirm that in Feb I will be taking on the role as Dud for a special 4 week run at the Comedy Museum in London. I am delighted to be working with two phenomenal talents Jonathan Hansler who will be taking the role of Peter Cook, & Clive Greenwood who will morph himself into 7 other characters, including Peter Sellers and Frankie Howard. I have personally seen him impersonate these guys and he is honestly a genius.
The show runs from Feb 3rd through to the 28th. Our press night will be on the 4th, so get your tickets fast.

By Jonathan Hansler & Clive Greenwood
Starring Kev Orkian as Dudley Moore
Directed by Vadim Jean
March 27 2002. Dudley Moore dies and finds himself in a bar… this must be heaven? Not quite! This bizarre bar is in a comedian’s limbo run by his old partner Peter Cook, and they face divine judgement for ‘Derek & Clive’.
Not the best of friends in life, the scene is set for showdown as Peter & Dudley have to resolve their differences, confront their past and face their future in Heaven or Hell.
Along the way in this darkly surreal comic fantasy, they are visited by other dead comics whose lives they influenced for good or bad, including Peter Sellers, Tony Hancock, Kenneth Williams and Frankie Howerd.
