Barry Is One Of The Greatest Comedians Of The Last 50 Years
Barry Cryer has collaborated with all the greats from Max Miller to Tony Hancock, Bob Hope, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, John Cleese, Frankie Howerd, Kenny Everett, Spike Milligan, Eric Sykes, Dave Allen, Richard Pryor, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Graham Chapman, the Two Ronnies, Morecambe and Wise – in fact almost all the great comedians and comic writers since the mid 1950s. Barry’s set of experiences with these legends of humour is unique, and will delight all who made PIGS CAN FLY a runaway porcine bestseller.
In this completely new, organically grown book, old Baz recalls, reminisces, recounts and other words beginning with ‘R’, on a trip down Memory Lane, pausing only for tea and macaroons at the Stannah Stairlift Cafe. What memories – if only he can remember them. Currently 74, a third of his life has already passed and he invites you to enjoy this wonderfully funny account of it, a decorous orgy of nostalgia.
Barry Cryer is a legendary scriptwriter and comedian, appearing regularly on Radio 4 and various TV shows. Several weeks of interviews with Barry helped to produce this volume of memories, anecdotes and observations.
A very funny and informative read… full of anecdotes and a brilliant insight into show business.
