1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Book Critic TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Feb 2012
Format: Paperback
A straightforward telling of a tale - the writing doesn't exactly leap from the page, the prose does not dance; in fact in a few places, the writing was so clumsy I had a job to tell just exactly the author was actually trying to say - but I came to this biography as a dyed in the wool Vic and Bob fan, I'm a captive audience, I was bound to keep reading. The story is interesting, the anecdotes entertaining.

It's an older book than I realised. It finishes just when the story was actually getting most interesting - Randall and Hopkirk was just being made, Bang Bang and Catterick and the half-decade lull in Vic and Bob's careers were still in the future when this book was written. A follow-up seems long overdue.

The photo inserts from Vic and Bob's friends provided in themselves an insight into their lives. It was very well reserched and I read it in about a day anyway! It has some great anecdotes and general information and I loved almost as much as I love Vic and Bob! If you are a fan, don't delay, buy it now! (and no, I don't work for Amazon!)

A great insight into the times when the British comedy scene was just about to explode into the 90's. Jim Moir and Bob Mortimer were well ahead of the movement with their mercurial and convivial shows in the Goldsmiths Tavern and later, the Hackney Empire. If you're a fan like me it's a must read!!
