ARCHIVE INTERVIEW: KEN CAMPBELL. Back in 2004, the legendary eccentric of British theatre spoke to Dominic Cavendish about his life and work. In the course of a delirious and rambling conversation that recalls the tone of Campbell’s own solo shows, they discuss the roots of the Ken Campbell Roadshow featuring actors like Bob Hoskins and Sylvester McCoy, his epic productions of Illuminatus! and The Warp, and the philosophical underpinnings of the Science Fiction Theatre of Liverpool. Recorded in London in 2004.
“Bob Hoskins, he’s a gangster these days. He could have gone the other way and been like Benny Hill”
