9780007234653: Eric Morecambe Unseen: The Lost Diaries, Jokes and Photographs

Containing diary entries, unseen photographs, and personal letters, this is the most revealing book yet on one of the UK's greatest and best-loved comedians. Even at the height of his success, Eric Morecambe feared his days were numbered as one half of Britain's best-loved comedy duo. It was a dread that had afflicted his whole career, according to his taped diaries. Containing 15,000 words of unseen diary entries; 200 unseen pictures, jokes, and sketches; and letters to both Ernie and Eric himself; everything in this book is personal and original, offering an exclusive insight into a comedic genius who was plagued with self-doubt. Even through his fear and uncertainty, Eric's inimitable humor shines through his diaries, joke books, and personal archives. This biography radiates with the gentle comedy genius that permeates his on-screen appearances, allowing an insight into Eric Morecambe that is both comfortingly familiar and revelatory.
