Colin Sell: Clueless at the Keys
‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’s much maligned pianist, Colin Sell, talks and sings at the keyboard in an evening of anecdotes about his life in comedy and music – on radio, in cabaret and on stage, working with the likes of Barry Cryer, Willie Rushton and Nicholas Parsons.
The ear-bashing challenges of accompanying Jeremy Hardy induce our sympathy, and he describes the gorgeous world of Samantha, and the versatile radio skills (including silence!) of Humphrey Lyttelton.
He also performs his own and others’ comedy songs – Flanders and Swann, Paddy Roberts and George Formby – and for a grand finale shares his fascination with silent cinema by accompanying a Buster Keaton comedy film: all in an attempt to redeem his reputation!
