Absolute must have for comedy enthusiasts.
on 28 May 2002
The subtitle of this book is 'an autobiography of sorts', which is very accurate really. It's undoubtedly autobiographical, but could also be looked on just as a collection of showbiz anecdotes, which will be of interest whether or not you are a particular fan of Barry Cryer, as many of them deal with famous names from Kenny Everett to J.B Priestley.
Often funny, sometimes sad, and occasionally both at once, this book sheds light on the eventful life of one of Britain's best loved comic personalities, and is a must have for anyone with an interest in comedy.
N.B Check out the photographs, especially the one of the cast of Frost Over England - see how many famous people you can identify!
