9780413193100: The Complete Barry Mckenzie: Not so Much a Legendary Strip, More a Resonant Social History Per Se (Methuen Humour Classic)

When Barry McKenzie got on the boat to England in 1965 and went to live in Earl's Court a legend was born. The Poms discovered what Australians were really like; the Australians discovered what the Poms were really like; and the English language suffered an assault from which it has never fully recovered. For over ten years the readers of 'Private Eye' followed the exploits of Australia's favourite son with bated breath and Bazza became an international cult figure. Constantly eager to sink a few swift ones, as well as to find a Sheila who bangs like a shithouse door, Barry was forever likely to discover at the crucial moment that the ice-cold Foster's had gone straight to the old feller and that he was bursting to point Percy at the porcelain or even to indulge in a technicolour yawn. Barry's exploits were published in three separate books (the third of which contained episodes so shocking that 'Private Eye' refused to print them), long since out of print. He also became the hero of two films. This special bicentennial volume contains all the original published strips written by Barry Humphries and drawn by Nicholas Garland, together with some new hitherto unpublished material, an updated glossary and learned appendices.
