Kenneth Horne

1907 - 1969




Kenneth Horne established a partnership with Richard Murdoch which blossomed in the radio shows Ack Ack, Beer Beer and Much Binding In The Marsh. He subsequently devised the popular sketch show Beyond Our Ken, which spawned another comedy series Round The Horne, renowned for its puns and doubles entendres.

As radio's most urbane and genial funny man, Horne was brilliant with a script, a master of comic timing and an unselfish foil.
