Rikki Fulton is one of the biggest stars Scotland has produced. From his early days compering for the great dance bands of the 1950s, to classic comedy performances in 'Francie & Josie' and 'Scotch & Wry' and appearances in Hollywood movies like 'Gorky Park', his hugely successful career on stage and screen has made him one of Scotland's best loved entertainers. Now, for the first time, Rikki tells the full story of his extraordinary life - from his childhood in Glasgow in the 1930s, to his experiences in the Royal Navy during the Second World War, and his rise to stardom after the war was over.
Rikki had always wanted to be a performer, but his fledgling theatrical career came to an abrupt halt when war broke out and he volunteered to serve in the Royal Navy. It was a decision that almost cost him his life, and the story of his war includes a harrowing account of the sinking of his first ship, HMS Ibis, which was torpedoed in 1942. After the war, Rikki returned to Glasgow to pick up the pieces of his former life and pursue his pre-war dreams of showbusiness success. Is It That Time Already? Is the story of how he fulfilled those dreams, but it is also a humorous and revealing portrait of his family and his childhood, and a highly entertaining account of a distinguished career dedicated to making people laugh.
