A fitting tribute to a marvellous man!
on 26 July 2004
The beauty of this book is that, upon picking it up, it is instantly readbale and enjoyable as an insight into Bob Monkhouse whilst, at the same time, providing you with witty anecdotes, skills and styles of comedy/speeches. The irony only comes when you start repeating parts of it and relating certain joke styles to people that you realise how effective it truly is. Whilst hideously dated in parts (bits refer to Thatcher and jokes on that theme), there is advice on how to update jokes like that with ease.
Buy it if you are ever thinking of giving a speech to a congregation of friends, family, businesses etc. but not to the United Nations.
