Description: Throughout his career, Barry Cryer has collaborated with all the greats, such as Max Miller, Tony Hancock, Bob Hope, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, John Cleese, Kenny Everett, Tommy Cooper, Spike Milligan, Morecambe and Wise, and more. 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 50 years, packed with jokes, fascinating asides, and riveting portraits of the major figures in comedy.

A string of anecdotes in the after-dinner-speech style. Ooopins of name-dropping and shedfuls of irreverent finger-pokes.
