Ken Campbell

Person  Male  Born 10/12/1941  Died 31/8/2008

Categories: Theatre, Cinema, TV & Radio

Writer, actor, director and comedian. Born in Ilford, Essex. Described as one of the strangest people in Britain. He trained at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art), but never fitted into any conventional slot in the theatre. His 1976 play Illuminatus!, (an eight-hour epic based on an American sci-fi trilogy), was the first production in the National Theatre's Cottesloe auditorium. He made numerous cameo appearances in films, plays and television comedies, including a version of Macbeth in pidgin English.
