'Violent Rhymes & Salacious Showbiz Gossip'
One of the most characterful and iconic TV and film actors returns to The Cube to stand up and entertain. Dudley is a great raconteur, full of charm, wit and attitude… hear about his varied and rich life and be charmed by the ditties, songs and the turns he pulls. Not for the faint-hearted, Dudley tells it like it is with funny twists and backing tracks from his i-phone. A true bohemian fire-starter of the one-in-a-kind mould.
Tonight he wants to play it out - that means cataloguing the joy, disaster, lunacy, success, failure, addiction, lust, suicide, exhilaration, laughter and hope that has run through his life.
Encounter tales of the unexpected from his thesping around including such great and varied work as the infamous ‘The Leather Boys’, the radical 60’s ‘Theatre Workshop’, Ken Russell’s ‘The Devils’, cult TV hit ‘Lovejoy’, as well as ‘This Filthy Earth’, ‘Porridge’, ‘The Avengers’, ‘Orlando’, ‘EastEnders’, stints around the ‘West End Theatre’, and more recently in ‘The Football Factory’ and 'Skins'. He is currently playing Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet at Bristol's Old Vic.
