DID you know Hollywood A-Lister Will Smith was from Roche? Or that a giant meteorite crashed into the earth thousands of years ago and wiped out Bugle?
Well now you do – and this is the real story of Cornwall, according to comedian The Kernow King. 
Caroline Quentin's take on Cornwall has divided opinion, with her ITV documentary angering some locals with its twee depiction of the county. But it has pleased those whose living depends on tourism.

However, the Kernow King has come up with his own, unique take on the show.

Watch the video below. Please note some of its content may not be appropriate for children.

The Kernow King's Cornwall focuses on the rather less glamorous locations and those your average tourist probably wouldn't even be aware of.
Episode one of the tongue-in-cheek in show focused on the place he calls home – Roche – and was posted on video sharing website YouTube yesterday. And it has attracted thousands of hits.
What do you think – do you find it more entertaining that Caroline Quentin's show? Leave your comment below.

    Kernow King published a series of media releases advising people who were Cornish and not English to state as much on the last Census. Having seen him live, he is unashamedly Cornish and believes that Cornwall is next to Engerland just like Wales. I have been a loyal fan ever since!

    It is nice to see the younger Cornish generation making full use of modern technology and putting their slant on things, good for you KK beats sitting around moaning and groaning all day.
