Personal Quote:

Speaking of young talent, Graham Kennedy was always the sort of man who nurtured young talent. He enjoyed giving young people a chance on television, he was a great mentor, he mentored a lot of young people. You knew if you went to his dressing room it was locked, he will be inside doing some mentoring. Don Lane was a mentor too. He did a hell of a lot of mentoring. See more »


He was awarded the MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1979 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to the performing arts. See more »
