What The Butler Saw: Tim McInnerny, Samantha Bond, Georgia Moffett, Omid Djalili
A new production of Joe Orton's comedy, directed by Sean Foley.
What The Butler Saw is an insanely funny, full-throttle comedy. Hysterical one-liners and outrageous twists collide, as the characters lose the plot, their wits, and their clothes.
When psychoanalyst Dr Prentice instructs his new secretary to undress, little does he expect to be interrupted by his wife, her blackmailing lover, a meddling government inspector and an inquisitive policeman. But hiding a naked woman is the least of his worries, as libidos run riot, identities are swapped and social decorum is buried.
Samantha Bond is an English actress best known for her role as Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond films starring Pierce Brosnan. She attended the Godolphin and Latymer School, and trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
Samantha Bond tour dates
One of Britain's freshest and most original comics, this British-born Iranian hams the accent and underlines the cliches before pulling the Persian rug from under the audience. With a career in comedy spanning across three decades, Omid Djalili's legendary performances on stage and screen have won him fans and plaudits the world over.
Renowned for his razor sharp wit, boundless energy and expertly crafted cultural observations, his original material continues to explore the diversity of modern Britain and he remains one of the most exciting entertainers on the circuit.
A firm favourite at the Edinburgh Festival, Omid's stand-up awards include the Time Out Award for Best Stand Up and the EMMA Award. He's also been a nominee for a Perrier Award and the South Bank Award. Omid was also awarded a Best Actor award at the Turin Film Festival for his lead performance in The Infidel.
'To carve yourself out a career as the thinking person's Iranian comedian in this political climate takes a fine brain and a masterful way with the audience. There is no question that Omid Djalili possesses both... Belly laughs with a subtle blend of mainstream gags and subversive twinkle' (The Sunday Times)
'Right now, the Iranian Djalili is probably one of the most subversive, let alone funniest, comedians around' (The Guardian)
'Iranalamadingdong is a must see for anyone that has a good sense of humour' (Birmingham Mail).
