Subject: Jonathan Miller, director and humorist, dies at 85

Written By: Philip Eno on 11/27/19 at 6:59 am

Sir Jonathan Miller, the distinguished theatre and opera director who famously starred in the Beyond the Fringe comedy revue, has died at the age of 85. In a statement, his family said he had died "peacefully at home... following a long battle with Alzheimer's". A man of many parts, Miller was also an author, a photographer, a sculptor, a broadcaster and a qualified doctor. Born in London in 1934, Miller studied medicine at Cambridge before embarking on a career in the arts. The catalyst was Beyond the Fringe, in which he appeared with Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Alan Bennett. The groundbreaking revue premiered at the 1960 Edinburgh Festival before transferring to the West End and Broadway.
