An hour of hilarity and madness with three showbiz legends.
Wilbur Wilde joined Jon Faine as his co-host for today’s Conversation Hour, you’ll know him as a saxophonist for Ol’ 55 and Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, as well as his regular TV gigs (memorably Hey Hey It’s Saturday). Today he chatted with Jon about touring the canals of France, and being the 2012 Variety Club Bash Champion!
Then he and Jon were wowed by the comic genius of Lenny Henry, the UK comedian, actor and writer currently touring Australia. Fresh from a performance for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, this is a man who’s just about done it all - from television’s ‘The ‘Lenny Henry Show’ to live stand up, film, docos, hosting the BAFTAs, the West End and Shakespeare Now, he brings his latest autobiographical show to Australia.
Lenny Henry’s one-man show Cradle to Rave is on tonight (Friday 29 June) at Her Majesty’s Theatre and there are shows still to come in Adelaide, Sydney and Canberra. And what a combination, when Toni Lamond joined in the conversation!
Toni was a regular on Graham Kennedy’s In Melbourne Tonight, has starred in countless musicals and theatre shows (Oliver, Pirates of Penzance, Caberet, Annie, Anything Goes, 42nd Street) and her television credits include Starsky and Hutch, Murder She Wrote, The Love Boat and Days of Our Lives.
And, as she told us today, she is still performing, teaching, writing and coming up with new projects. Her latest is Learn English As You Sing Along. After a comment by a taxi driver, Toni realised music could be a tool to help people learn English. She recorded ten popular songs, along with an introduction to each and a lyric book to read as you sing along.
