John Standing

"Striking and charismatic... Beautifully suited to the mixture of wry wit and aching romanticism of Porter's American songbook classics... Standing really does swing." Daily Telegraph

John Standing, a perennially popular Crazy Coqs regular, is one of the UK's leading actors, having starred in the West End and on Broadway as well as plays written by some of the world's foremost writers including Shaw, Wilde, Farquhar, Coward, Stoppard and Grey.

John finds singing the songs of the greatest American songwriters of his time and his great British contemporaries is something of a Bon Bouche.

In John's own words: "It is nothing but a glorious bean feast for me to be fortunate enough to have a crack at these glorious songs. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we do performing it."

Accompanied by Will Stuart on piano and Hattie Scott on bass.
