Randy Otto as Winston Churchill

The recitation’s genesis was a simple encouragement from Otto’s University British History Professor, Dr. Maxwell Schoenfeld in 1973. Schoenfeld encouraged Otto not only to study Churchill’s life academically, but to emulate the great man on stage. An alumnus of the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre and numerous theatrical roles, over the past 43 years Churchill scholar, motivational speaker and performance artist Randy Otto – B.A. Theatre/University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire – has honed the concept into a one-man show designed to entertain and electrify.

I have heard many people attempt to play the role of my great-grandfather, but without hesitation, Randy Otto takes the role to a whole new level. Randy does not attempt to be Winston Churchill, Randy IS Winston Churchill.

International Public Speaker & Author, Sir Winston Churchill's Great Grandson

…an evening spent with Randy Otto is as close as you will come to an evening with the colossus of the age: Winston Churchill.
