My Name is Harry Worth
The play - which has the backing of the Harry Worth estate - was first staged to great acclaim in Harry's hometown of Barnsley and now comes to the Lion and Unicorn Theatre to mark the centenary of the Yorkshire miner-turned comedian's birth. Often regarded as a predecessor to the likes of Harry Hill, Vic Reeves and Count Arthur Strong, Harry Worth was a dithering, yet gentle and genial figure, totally bemused by life and creating riotous confusion wherever he went. A hilarious, yet poignant one-man tour-de-force, My Name Is Harry Worth
celebrates a pioneering surreal comic genius in style and is a must for fans of classic British comedy.
