Rufus is the man for Blackpool
The National Theatre's smash-hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors a West End and Broadway sensation, is coming to Blackpool Grand in November. Comedian and presenter Rufus Hound will take on the lead role of Francis Henshall.
His work includes seven series of the award-winning Celebrity Juice, the BBC sitcom Hounded, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 Cats, The Xtra Factor and current primetime comedy show Mad Mad World.
Based on the 1743 Italian play The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, One Man, Two Guvnors replaces Italy with 1960s Brighton. Written by Richard Bean and directed by Sir Nicholas Hytner, this award-winning play is a celebration of British comedy: a unique, laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, slapstick and glittering one-liners.
