Matthew has composed original music for Alex Lowe's one man play telling the story of Bob Monkhouse. The play stars Simon Cartwright and is directed by Bob Golding.
Regarded as a man with a ‘Teflon’ showbiz veneer, (some might call it ‘oily’) the show shines a bright light on a personality who among many accolades was simultaneously voted Most Loved and Most Hated Entertainer in a 1978 TV poll.
We trace his life through a difficult childhood, via the vertiginous heights of television superstardom, the dent in his status during the ‘new wave’ comedy of the late ‘80s and finish with a re-born Bob, back on tv and finally feted as the comic genius he undoubtedly was.
Produced by Cahoots Theatre Company (AN AUDIENCE WITH JIMMY SAVILLE, DEAD SHEEP) the show plays at the Edinburgh Festival followed by a national tour.
