"I spent days watching the genius of Keaton, Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy and James Finlayson (possibly the best ‘double taker’ of all time) and then trying to convey this in the play [Comic Potential]… Their genius is timeless. Their skill and dedication to storytelling, poignancy and laughter is inspirational. I remember when working with Alan for the first (and subsequent) times, I thought the same of him. My opinion hasn’t changed!"
