Richard Soames: Let’s Make A Movie (Work In Progress)

One man. One second-hand camcorder. Let's make a movie.

One man. One audience. One second-hand camcorder.

Can you help “charming storyteller” (Chortle) Richard Soames many-handedly make a movie, get the band back together, rescue the President, stop the alien invasion, blow up an asteroid, give that rousing speech to the Little League Hockey team, cast the ring into the fires of The Death Star and make it back for his daughter’s birthday without crossing the streams all on Christmas eve?

Set expectations to stunned. Let’s make a movie.

“Oozing likability” – The Skinny. “Excellent” – Sunday Times. As seen on BBC1’s Michael McIntyre’s Big Show. As heard on Radio 4’s Sketchorama.
