Capel WI Meeting 16th September
As soon as Chris Hare started his talk – 40 Years Without a Proper Job – we started to laugh and we were still laughing after nearly an hour. He told us stories of his times as a Theatre Manager at many different theatres and of the many comedians and musicians he came into contact with.
Chris is the son of a musician and a model who worked at Fenwicks. After playing in a jazz band at the age of 17, he then decided to join the world of show business. We heard several anecdotes about famous people such as Norman Wisdom, Tommy Cooper, Victor Borge and Sarah Vaughan and many, many more, all of which were extremely funny.
He was involved with the Water Rats and worked with many variety acts during his career but he always loved pantomimes and told us how children in the audience always managed to steal the limelight from the actors on the stage!
It was a fantastic talk and we won’t forget Chris Hare, that’s for sure!
