Ealing Live!

Written by the cast
Produced by Rob Moore at Ealing studios
Directors: Season one – Paul King Season Two – John Gordillo Season Three – David Sant

This brilliant show was a weekly event that ran for three years where I cut my teeth as a writer-performer.It was produced by Ealing Studios on the old sound stage where all of the classic Ealing Comedies, such as Lavendar Hill Mob and Lady Killers, were recorded.

The show reached a cult status on the comedy circuit and had a cast of the best character comics in London. The cast included Lucy Montgommery, Simon Farnaby, Ben Willbond, Steve Oram, Thom Meeton, Barunka O’shaungessy, Alice Lowe, Richard Glover, Tony Law, Justin Edwards, Gareth Tunley with regular guest hosts Reg D Hunter and Phil Nichol all of whom have all gone on to do great things in TV and film.

Here are some clips from the DVD show featuring John courtesey of Ealing Studios.
