Alistair McGowan, the well known British comedian, TV presenter, entertainer and narrator in this video, is a very civic-minded individual who, whenever possible, helps out others in whatever ways he can.

As a result Alistair decided to read a book on behalf of The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, London, to help support their 'Brain Charity - Story Time  Appeal', which is aiming to boost donations for its NHS Staff Emergency Fund.

He opted for "Kevin..." simply because he really likes the book, having previously been given a copy by the author some years ago.
