British entertainer, actor, impersonator and award winning writer. At the age of 13, Benson won a competition with his story, "The Rag and Bone Man on Jackanory," 12/10/1975. This brought him in contact with Kenneth Williams, the actor who narrated his story and who was later to play an important part in his professional life.
Becoming a canny actor and impersonator himself, Benson worked with the Edinburgh Fringe Group and the Grassmarket Project Theatre Company from 1990, as well as contributing fringe plays between 1990-95. Benson conceived the outstanding one-man show, "Think No Evil of Us, My Life with Kenneth Williams" in October 1994, taking it to the Edinburgh Festival 8/12/1996. From January '97, he began a nationwide tour to rave reviews, especially poignant from those who knew Williams personally.
