Show Notes

This week on The Lonely Arts Club, Martin McQuillan is joined by Les Dennis. 

Les is an actor and comedian and despite describing himself as a shy person, admits that once he caught the performing bug, there was no stopping him. 

Developing a successful career in entertainment has taken Les down many paths, including being one half of a comedy duo, spending fifteen years on primetime Saturday night TV and more recently finding a new love for opera. 

During this episode, we speak to Les about the motivation to keep developing his craft and the highs and lows of a life in showbiz.
