Aug 22, 1915
Hugh William Paddick (22 August 1915 – 9 November 2000, Hoddesdon, Milton Keynes) was an English actor, whose most notable role was in the 1960s BBC radio show Round the Horne in sketches such as Charles and Fiona (as Charles) and Julian and Sandy (as Julian). Both he and Kenneth Williams are largely responsible for introducing the underground language polari to the British public. He was born in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. He preferred theatre to any other form of acting and spent most of his life on the stage, from his first role while at acting school in 1937 until his retirement. He was also an accomplished musician - singer, pianist and organist. He can be heard at the piano accompanying Julian and Sandy in a number of their sketches on both "Round the Horne" and also "The Bona World of Julian and Sandy". Paddick appeared in the original Drury Lane production of "My Fair Lady". When not working, Hugh Paddick and his partner, Francis, were keen gardeners at their west London home. Paddick was gay and lived for over thirty years with his partner Francis, whom he met at a party in London. He was distantly related to Brian Paddick, England's first openly gay police commander.
