Such A Talented Man ....

I've loved Ben Elton for as long, I think, as I have been on the planet!

My first introduction, naturally, being the 'BlackAdder' trilogy that he wrote - he didn't write the first series - such cutting barbed comments, tight scripts....just plain fun...and, of course, making history interesting....

From there I backtracked to 'The Young Ones', an early 80's cult anarchic comedy series....crazy...surreal....a must see!

All these I found from my sister.....

Then his books, starting with 'Stark', 'This Other Eden', 'Dead Famous' and a few others....

Throughout, he writes eloquently.....with thought....with wit....and wisdom...

Not content with that, he was also - how he started - as a stand up comic....one of the very best....he had many series as a comic for the BBC....

Another series, a family comedy series, was 'The Thin Blue Line', which was a hilarious riot of fun, based in a police station....

And.....he came up with the story line for the Queen musical, 'We Will Rock You'...

The man's a star in my book....

Check him out.....
