Barry Cryer is a National Treasure - this is his brilliant collection of true, tall, stories from his fifty years in comedy.

Throughout his career, Barry Cryer has collaborated with all the greats, from Max Miller to Tony Hancock, Bob Hope, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, John Cleese, Kenny Everett, Tommy Cooper, Spike Milligan, Morecambe and Wise ... in fact pretty well all the best comedians and comic writers since the mid-1950s. He has also collaboratively penned series like 'Hello Cheeky!', toured with Willie Rushton in their show 'Two Old Farts in the Night', and is a panellist on 'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue'.

This is his collection of completely true apocryphal stories from these fifty years, packed with jokes, fascinating asides and riveting portraits of the major figures in comedy.

About the Author:

Barry Cryer's writing credits include material for Morecambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Bruce Forsyth, Rory Bremner and Jasper Carrott, to name but a few. As if this was not enough, he has also collaboratively penned series like Hello Cheeky! and appears regularly on I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, and Just a Minute. He delighted audience with his one-man show The First Farewell Tour. He was made an OBE for services to comedy in 2001.

Review:

Strangely absorbing book... enough jokes to keep those down the pub amused for a couple of months.

What's striking about this assortment of anecdotes and reminiscences is his [Cryers] good nature... There's real warmth in his relationships with Thora Hird, Willie Rushton and others.
