It has to be better than the truly dreadful Fringe version in Edinburgh a couple of years ago with Lionel Blair.

Alas not, It would have made it a lot more entertaining. It had a load of comics mucking about like they were in panto which was a shame because some of them (Marcus Brigstocke for example) probably could have been quite good in a straight production

Forgot to say that the programme £2.50 is a scandal sheet, The Daily Sneer, very entertaining.

Any more examples of 1980's TV non-actors appearing in the classics ?

Mr Rumbold was the Duke of Something or Other in Adrian Noble's Plantagenets and jolly good he was too though I was sorry to have missed Jim Bowen's John of Gaunt in the same season

The cash you won for charity - that's safe
Lets have a look at what you could have won:
This royal throne of kings, this scepter’d isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war.
Instead I give to you this bendy bull.

Mr Rumbold was an actor though wasn't he ? Or was it a documentary ?

In later years Bowen did a hysterical one man show revealing, inter alia, how come a power boat featured as a Bullseye star prize so often.
