Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael "Atters" Attree (born 22 April 1965, Colchester Military Hospital) is a British satirist, comedy writer, performer and comedian. "Atters," as he is widely known, is often portrayed within the media as either the quintessential English gentleman or Ealing Comedies-style villainous cad. Attree was born to British colonial parents who met in East Africa during the early 1950s. His late father worked as a District Officer in Kenya for Her Majesty's Government during the Mau Mau Uprising. Attree's formative years were spent in Oxford at his Italianate parental home (designed by Sir Bertram Clough Williams-Ellis of Portmeirion and The Prisoner acclaim). He moved to London during the early 1980s and graduated in Fine Art & Film from Saint Martins School of Art (along with alumnus contemporaries Daniel Barber, Jarvis Cocker and Frieda Hughes). At that time the late art connoisseur and critic George Melly compared Attree's abstract oil painting style to that of Willem de Kooning.show more
