This book took me back to my mis-spent youth and later my early days as a stand-up comic in the pubs and clubs of East London.
I still see a few of the girls featured and do shows with some of the comics mentioned, people like Mark Brown, Peter Tibbs Jnr, Ian Flemming, Dick Beemer and Paul Wellings...but it is the pictures of the strippers and dancers that take me on a trip down memory lane.
Lara Clifton was stunning, and is now a `proper` actress, Ginger Sally is a dog trainer, and Julie Taylor who was the best in the business for a while, all make this book value for money.
I would like to see a Part Two. Some of the performers have moved on to mainstream entertainment, others have not, it would make interesting reading.
Lara how about a follow up?
Julie Taylor moved from Pub lunchtimes to x-rated stags and then adult movies, she starred in Saturday Night Special, and Black In Blondes, but what about Cindy Jackson, Dee Dee and all the others?
