At the Intelligence Squared debate Jane Austen vs. Emily Bronte, he played Lockwood from Wuthering Heights (@GuyHolloway_HCH and @louloudillon) and Mr Elton from Emma (@_gabriellasf). @sasmith66 described the event as "brilliant" and @ragazza_inglese was "moved to tears" by a ghostly scene from Wuthering Heights.
The debate will be released as a podcast (via Sam's Twitter, @exitthelemming). Sam also tweeted the outcome of the debate: click here for the result.
Last week, Sam narrated Carnival of the Animals at The Hexagon and the Southbank Centre. He wore a furry giraffe-print suit for the performances - see his selfie on Twitter!
Here's a selection of tweets about the Hexagon performance
@theoae @KMLabeque @exitthelemming - brilliant concert tonight.
Wonderful @oae with lovely #labeque sisters & Samuel West dressed as a giraffe - great evening - and all for a fiver! #bargainnightout
Glorious, glorious performance by @theoae tonight. Wonderful orchestra and excellent recital by @exitthelemming (whose suit was amazing) :)
@exitthelemming Concert fab last night. You were fab. Suit was fab
Financial Times (23 February)
"a joyous, carefree romp in which the actor Samuel West declaimed Ogden Nash’s idiosyncratic narration."
"Samuel West appeared as the compere, reciting Ogden Nash’s brilliantly witty verses – a performance which he delivered with a wry deadpan American accent."
B Good tweeted a picture of Sam from In Love With Shakespeare, a Sky Arts program from 2011.
