Here’s a cornucopia of clever comedy, featuring sketches, monologs, poems, and songs in this sequential entertainment for radio. Among the sketches, Mr. Serpent, a sales rep in the Garden of Eden, tries to flog a knowledge course to Eve ("one bite and you’re a PhD"). A doctor has to give some bad news, but gets more emotional than the patient, and there’s love among the road reports. There’s an exclusive interview with Charlie Chaplin, some lavatory humor (a sketch set in a manager’s washroom), how to learn baby talk, and "Analysis Through the Looking-Glass." A baptism causes naming problems, while among the songs is "What Am I Going To Do About You?" ("You’re like Everest with all its icy crags, I don’t think I’ll get over you somehow.") Co-written by Gerald Wiley (the pseudonym used by Ronnie Barker), David Nobbs, and Harold Pinter, this sophisticated cabaret-cum-sketch-show contains plenty of witty wordplay, and is vintage Ronnie Barker. Starring Ronnie Barker, with Terence Brady, Pauline Yates, and Gordon Langford.

About the Author:

Ronnie Barker was loved by millions for his roles in classic shows Open All Hours, Porridge, and The Frost Report. Barker began writing and performing in radio shows such as The Navy Lark. Barker met his comedy partner Ronnie Corbett while working on The Frost Report. Legend has it that they were signed up by the BBC after they impressed producers by filling in when a technical hitch occurred during the BAFTA awards. A gifted character actor as well as comedy writer, Barker went to star in classic sitcoms Open All Hours and Porridge.
