Brian Blessed - Absolute Pandemonium

There is no one quite like Brian Blessed. He’s an actor, film star, trained undertaker, unlikely diplomat, secret romantic, martial artist and mountaineer. He’s also a brilliant storyteller who will – and you must brace yourself – loudly fill the Yvonne Arnaud with the story of his life.

Get ready to be taken on a riotous journey from his childhood, growing up the son of a miner in Goldthorpe, to finding fame in Z-Cars. You’ll see Brian falling for Katharine Hepburn, suffering wires strapped round his wotsits as he was hoisted into the heavens on Flash Gordon, almost causing an international incident when meeting the Emperor and Empress of Japan, and winning round George Lucas to get the role of Boss Nass on Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

He’s also an explorer– the oldest man to have trekked to the magnetic North Pole – and a boxer who has sparred with Joe Louis and Mohammad Ali. Now, this gifted raconteur is sharing his extraordinary story of a life lived to the full. Funny, outspoken, warm-hearted and life-affirming, Absolute Pandemonium is the entertaining story of one of Britain’s best-loved actors.
