Kenneth Williams

1926 - 1988




Well known as the star of twenty six Carry On... films, Williams had a long and notable radio career.
His repertoire of characters ranged from the sophisticated to the ridiculous and he could switch between each in an instant.

He followed Hancock's Half Hour, Beyond Our Ken and Round The Horne with series such as Stop Messing About and The Betty Wetherspoon Show.

His run of more that 20 years on Just A Minute allowed him the flexibility to demonstrate his incisive wit and vocal talent, as well as providing a marked and welcomed contrast to the other panelists.
