Superb Ustinov
3 May 2012 | by bucks-musicSee all my reviews

This puts to shame most of the shows that pass as entertainment these days. Peter Ustinov was (sadly) a great raconteur, actor, director and humanitarian. Not to mention a gifted mimic as well.

The only reason I haven't this 10/10 is because if you buy the DVD, as I did when it first came out, its only 50 minutes. There must be more footage available surely.

I completely disagree with the previous reviewer this is very funny, and the audience is laughing because PU was a very funny man. Between displaying his wit and musical talent he also impersonates Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, John Huston and Charles Laughton.

I have watched this, to be honest I've lost count, but certainly dozens of times. In the 80s shows (which were the best) only Dudley Moore's, Billy Connelly and Kenneth Williams come any where near to matching Ustinov's show.

Sure he is probably not to everybody's taste, and his stories are mainly about a different era, so if in doubt watch some clips on Youtube.

For me though its a classic show, performed by, well I've got to say it, a great man.
