Stop Messing About
Kenneth Williams series

Stop Messing About was the follow-up to Round the Horne starring Kenneth Williams, with Hugh Paddick and Joan Sims. The announcer was Douglas Smith.

The sudden death of Kenneth Horne, at the end of series four of Round the Horne prompted a rewrite of the material intended for series five which then found its way into Stop Messing About alongside new sketches; Round the Horne writers Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke are therefore credited with series one of Stop Messing About, while series two, which was entirely original, was written by Myles Rudge.

The title of the show was a catchphrase coined for Williams by Galton and Simpson back in the days of Hancock's Half Hour. Hugh Paddick and announcer Douglas Smith were retained from Round the Horne, starring alongside Joan Sims, who had already signed on for the fifth series of Round the Horne in place of Betty Marsden and therefore made a smooth transition to Stop Messing About.
