Stephen Fry is a leading light in film, theatre, radio and television the world over, and is an accomplished and award-winning actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, blogger, television presenter, film director, former director of Norwich City Football Club, national treasure, and of course not forgetting Lord of the Dance. He was the first winner of The Perrier Comedy Award at the Edinburgh fringe festival in 1981 as part of the Cambridge Footlights. As a writer, producer, director, actor and presenter he has featured in works as varied and adored as ‘Wilde’, the Mayor of Rivertown in ‘The Hobbit’, Peter in ‘Peter’s Friends’, musical ‘Me and My Girl’, the TV series ‘Blackadder’ and ‘Jeeves and Wooster’, the sketch show ‘A Bit of Fry and Laurie’, the panel game ‘QI’, the radio series ‘Fry’s English Delight’, The Globe’s celebrated 2012 production of ‘Twelfth Night’ (as Malvolio alongside Mark Rylance), audio-book narrator of the wildly popular ‘Harry Potter’ series and documentaries on countless subjects very close to his heart.

He is the author of the best-selling semi-autobiographic novel The Liar (described as “brilliantly entertaining and consistently outrageous” by the Daily Mail) and Tony is honoured to be able to call on him as a mentor on that project.
