5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Davro!, 16 Nov 2011
The world of comedy has seen its fair share of greats over the last 50 years; Cleese, Izzard, Connolly, Bowen and of course the incomparable Davro.

This fine autobiography traces Beadle's desperate struggle for fame, often to be over shadowed by his twin brother; plate balancer and ferret breeder, Simon 'Corn beef face' Weston. It was only after a 1 night stand with TV's Floella Benjamin that Beadle first got bit by the media bug (quite literally; Floella's clunge was infested with crabs).
