9781906779948: Bob Monkhouse Unpublished!: Personal Anecdotes, Gags, Sketches and Excerpts from the Famous 'Lost' Joke Books. David Ismay with Chris Gidney

'There is an up-side to serious memory loss. Every couple of hours you have an entirely new circle of friends'. Comedy star Monkhouse was famous for his quick, ad-lib, one-liner jokes. Famously, he kept a joke book that hit the news headlines when it was stolen. Now, fortunately for us, we have a whole new, never-before-seen collection of Bob's jokes. From sketches to one-liners, hilarious mottos to freaky-facts, and covering everyday subjects as diverse as restaurants, taking the car to the garage, advice for frequent fliers, and the weather, we can continue to enjoy Monkhouse's wit and wisdom. Close personal friend, David Ismay, himself a warm-up artist, also provides compelling personal anecdotes of their time spent together over nearly forty years of friendship, set in the industry that Bob knew best: theatre.

About the Author:

David Ismay first met Bob Monkhouse nearly forty years ago. A close friend, he was encouraged in his career as a 'warm-up' by Bob and their families holidayed together. During the last months of his life, Dave was continually by Bob's side. Entertainer, producer and author Chris Gidney has written over 17 books, many of which have been celebrity-based, including Celebrating Secombe with Harry Secombe and Under No Illusions with Paul Daniels.

Review:

'Provides plenty of laughs as well as a personal insight into the comic genius' Lancashire Evening Post 20101023
