Book Description

1 Sep 2010
Once again, Bobby Knutt tells it just as it was and is in a story that goes behind the scenes and demonstrates with earthy good humour that the world of showbiz is definitely more spit and sawdust than feathers and sequins. Bobby is a born storyteller and with a cast of unforgettable characters - everybody from Marti Caine to Frankie Howerd - he really can't go wrong! --John Highfield

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy and tragedy 15 April 2011
By Stuart
I first saw Bobby Knutt at Swillington Miners Welfare Club some time around the mid 1970's and, at a time when the northern club circuit was awash with good quality acts, he stood out. Some 20 years later I saw him again when he was guest speaker at a British Coal management dinner and, once more, he didn't disappoint. The next sighting was on board P&O's Victoria, which he covers in the book with great dignity. Sadly the audiences didn't want to listen: he entertained me both verbally and vocally with the jokes and a moving folk song about the ANZAC troops, but when most of the audience have turned up for a natter or a kip any act is beaten before he starts. Moving on a couple of years and our paths crossed again on a different ship with a different audience, and he held them in the palm of his hand, he absolutely shone.

This book is a down-to-earth, honest diary of a full and fascinating life. It brought out every emotion for me: tears of sadness when Bobby covers the deaths of those close to him, including people who have touched all our lives, the likes of Marti Caine and Brian Glover, and tears of laughter in all sorts of places, in particular the tale of the young lad at the Panto aand the cruise passenger the unfortunate Stuart Gillies found himself stuck with.

With age comes a different outlook: Bobby would probably admit that the first part of his life was spent chasing a livelihood and chasing women, and on that score he was obviously a fast runner: latterly, particularly after punching above his weight and landing the lovely Donna, he has settled down and shows in this book the feelings for friends and loved ones which he didn't show so much in the first book.

I thought the first book was really funny and entertaining so obviously I had to get the second one.
I found the book to be funny, sad,entertaining and informative.
A wide selection of anecdotes,beautifully described.
What a fascinating life Bobby.
Keep working and writing.I would definitely recommend this book and hope No.3 is planned.
