Chris Langham - Rotten Tomatoes

Chris Langham



British multi-hyphenate Chris Langham achieved fame and success over the course of four decades, as an actor, screenwriter, and occasional director, almost always in the comedic vein. Langham first cropped up during the early '70s, with guest appearances on at least two Spike Milligan specials and bit parts in such vehicles as The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976) and Sink or Swim (1977). He netted broader recognition at the tail end of the decade, as a multi-role player in the Monty Python biblical spoof The Life of Brian, as one of the regulars on the seminal U.K. comedy series Not the Nine o' Clock News (1979), and one of the occasional scripters on Jim Henson's The Muppet Show. By the mid- to late '80s, the actor branched out into occasional dramatic turns, such as the 1985 telemovie Silas Marner and the 1988 docudrama Apprentice to Murder, but he continued to make greatest impact on U.K. television, in such popular series as Kiss Me Kate, Clive Anderson Talks Back, and Help.
