Talks at the  Cafe Royal with Antique Beat and A Curious Invitation

‘Ian is the only acclaimed non fiction writer in the history of the West End ever to have adapted his own work as a hit comedy… and starred in it’

- Sir Jonathan Bate on Mr Foote’s Other Leg.

...Foote's was the most talked-of name in the English-speaking world. By 1777 it was almost unmentionable. Samuel Foote, friend of David Garrick and Dr Johnson, is the greatest lost figure of the eighteenth century; his story defies belief and has only been forgotten for reasons both laughable and shocking. Foote wrote the first true-crime bestseller, was the first celebrity impressionist and lost his leg after a bet with the Duke of York when a practical joke went disastrously wrong. Out of this was born the most singular career in stage history, the subject of both book and hit West End comedy last year at The Theatre Royal Haymarket.

In this talk award-winning historian and playwright Ian Kelly offers a joyous hop around the mad theatre of London life - high and low - and its representation in both award-winning non fiction and West End play 'Mr Foote’s Other Leg'

Ian Kelly

Ian Kelly is a multi-award winning actor and author, whose previous work includes biographies of Casanova (Sunday Times Biography of the Year) and Beau Brummell. Mr Foote's Other Leg, aligned his unique twin-careers as historian and actor and was then adapted for the stage in last year’s Hampstead/ Richard Eyre production at the Theatre Royal Haymarket starring Simon Russell Beale.
