'A day without laughter is a day wasted.' Charlie Chaplin
We welcome Pip back following his stunning performances as Maggie Thatcher, Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler. Pip is truly a Tour de force one not to miss.
Chaplin created an image of himself for public consumption that hid the darker sides of his personality. Using cleverly produced film footage, Pip Utton steps in and out of the screen to become Chaplin, both young and old, the reality and the creation. It's Christmas morning 1977, very early and everyone in the house is fast asleep. It is the morning of the day Chaplin dies and the Tramp haunts Chaplin's dreams. Which one of the two did the public love?
"I think Pip Utton is an alien, a protean creature which can turn into anything it desires! I've seen him as Tony Hancock, Adolf Hitler and Francis Bacon, as well as a Roy Orbison lookalike and Joseph the father of Jesus, and he was utterly convincing as all of them. He even managed to look like his subjects. And this year he takes on the old Charlie Chaplin and does it again."
