THE HISTORY OF BILLY MARSH
Billy Marsh was one of the leading Theatrical Agents for over 30 years from the earliest days of commercial television. The success and enduring popularity of some of his best-known clients, including Morecambe & Wise, Norman Wisdom and Bruce Forsyth, to name but a few – is possibly the greatest testament to his talent and the esteem with which he is held. Billy was the only Agent ever to be the subject of ‘This is Your Life’.
Respected and as loved as he was, it was agreed that his final resting place would be in The London Palladium which is very fitting for a man who was the doyen of Agents and who helped many stars begin their careers at this wonderful theatre. Billy’s ashes were interred close to the stage where many performers of today see the blue plaque placed in his honour.
We at Billy Marsh Associates proudly continue to bear his name and we were delighted that Billy was chosen to be the subject of ‘Great Lives’ on BBC Radio 4. The programme was presented by Matthew Parris. He talks to Michael Grade who worked with Billy and William G. Stewart who Billy represented for many years. To listen to the programme click here
