A Fishy Tale

Please Mr Spielberg…

I’m Kelvin Codner. That’s me in the photo – the orange fish in the middle. You may remember me from such films as ‘A Fish called Codner” and ‘Dude, Where’s my Carp?’

I make a splash in a crowd scene – you won’t catch me ‘sleeping with the fishes’!

Can I do comedy? Don’t make me laugh! You should see my double act with ‘Salmon Dave’, “Live in the Hollywood Bowl”.

I’m also very versatile. A review for ‘Waterworld’ stated, “Codner is mouth-watering. He just gets batter with every part.”

In short, I’m a scale model of Jaws!
