Hit Sky Arts series Urban Myths returns with Les Dawson tale

Urban Myths, the International Emmy Award nominated series, returns to Sky Arts for a fourth instalment, fictionalising some of the most peculiar stories to have ever leaked out of Hollywood, the music industry and the worlds of art and culture.

Written by and starring Steve Pemberton alongside John Bradley and Mark Addy, our opening episode tells the story of the well-loved stand-up comedian’s adventures in Paris in the mid-1950s. Inspired by his heroes, the writers Jean Paul Sartre and Albert Camus, a young Les Dawson (Bradley) left his home in Manchester to live in Paris in order to pursue his dream
of becoming a serious novelist. Unfortunately, things didn’t quite work out as he planned, and he ended up becoming a pianist in a brothel.

Urban Myths returns on Wednesday 7 October, at 10pm on Sky Arts. Stream it via NOW TV.
