Kevin takes on the role of Jerry and joins Harry Enfield, Claudie Blakley and John Marquez on stage in this Broadway classic, directed by the remarkable Richard Jones.

Hollywood, 1930. The first-ever talking motion picture is a smash hit and suddenly every actor needs a voice. Three New Yorkers head west to cash in on the talkies trend by opening an elocution school. But in a city heaving with clueless ingénues, all-powerful studio moguls and neurotic screenwriters, success is trickier than it seems.

Kevin’s previous work for television includes The Kevin Bishop Show,  BAFTA TV Award-nominated Star Stories Porridge, Benidorm, Channel Four’s Comedy Gala.

Theatre credits include:  Fully Committed  (Menier Chocolate Factory) and Fat Pig (The Comedy Theatre).
Film credits include:  Irena Palm,  L’Auberge EspagnoleThe Muppets Treasure Island

Once in a Lifetime by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, adapted by Christopher Hart, is directed by Richard Jones and runs 25 November – 14 January 2017 in the Young Vic’s Main House. It is designed by Hyemi Shin with costumes by Nicky Gillibrand, light by Jon Clark, sound by Sarah Angliss and casting by Julia Horan CDG.
