LES DENNIS

Play: Marlon Brando’s Corset: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh. 2006
Play: Jigsy: Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh, 2012 

I saw TV comedy star Les Dennis appear in the play Marlon Brando’s Corset at the Edinburgh Festival in 2006.  The play was an ironic farce about a British soap opera and Dennis played the writer of the show alongside Mike McShane and Jeremy Edwards.

Dennis returned to the Fringe in 2012 to star in the one-man play Jigsy. Written by Tony Staveacre, the story of a has-been Liverpool comedian.  Dennis proved he was a good comic actor with impeccable timing and heart-felt poignancy.
