Peter Sellers was an English comedian.


Born Richard Henry Sellers in Southsea to a pair of variety entertainers, he worked backstage at the Victoria Palace Theatre and honed his skills at impressionism whilst becoming a musician. He soon appeared on stage as a comedian, and due to his own ingenuity secured a radio career. It was here that he made his first standout success with Harry Secombe and Spike Milligan as one of The Goons.

Sellers' role in The Goons led to him becoming a character actor in such films as The Ladykillers before making a major success with the character of Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther, which soon became a film series focusing on Sellers' character. Sellers became immensely popular for films such as 'Dr Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb but made numerous attempts to break into serious acting, breaking through with Being There, for which he received an Academy Award nomination.

Soon after this, Sellers passed away in 1980.


As a member of The Goons, Sellers performed a number of comedy songs and singles, notably The Ying Tong Song in 1956. He also released a solo album entitled. The Best of Sellers and collaborated with Sophia Loren on Peter and Sophia, duetting on "Goodness Gracious Me" and "Bangers and Mash".

Sellers also sang in a number of his films, albeit briefly, his most major singing role being as The March Hare in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. He also appeared as himself on The Muppet Show, and sang "A Gypsy's Violin" and "Cigarettes and Alcohol".
