Since then Elton has achieved huge success as a stand-up comic, author, playwright, actor and director.
He's written television shows such as The Young Ones, Blackadder 2, Blackadder The Third, Blackadder Goes Forth, The Thin Blue Line, the famous 'exam' episode of Mr Bean, the recent UK smash hit Upstart Crow and many more, as well as writing and directing two feature films: 2000's Maybe Baby and 2017s Australian-made Three Summers. Last year he wrote Kenneth Branagh's critically acclaimed biopic of William Shakespeare All is True which starred Dame Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellen.
