Previously Posted: On February 4, 2013, actor, stand-up comic and presenter Rufus Hound will join the cast of Nicholas Hytner’s One Man, Two Guvnors, which is currently booking at the Theatre Royal Haymarket until August 31, 2013.

He will play lovable chancer Frances Henshall, the role he has played in the current UK touring production.

Rufus Hound is best known as a comedian and TV and radio personality. His TV work includes seven series of the award-winning Celebrity Juice, Hounded, 8 out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Mad Mad World and the forthcoming second series of A Touch of Cloth. He has also presented Top of the Pops, Glastonbury Live and Out Take TV.

His radio credits include Act Your Age and My Teenage Diary for BBC Radio 4, as well as his own comedy show What’s So Funny. He has also appeared in the films Wedding Video and My Big Fat Gypsy Gangster.

In Richard Bean’s English version of Goldoni’s classic Italian comedy, sex, food and money are high on the agenda.

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancee’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at the Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, all Francis has to do is keep his two guvnors apart. Simple!
