About the Author
Roy Hudd's career began in the 1950s and since then he has worked with most of the major stars of the last40 years. Born in Croydon in 1936, his early life was turbulent. His father left home and his mother committed suicide during the war, leaving his formidable, but adored grandmother, to raise him. It was she who gave him the title for this book. His big television break came with "Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life "and he also had a brief stint in the popular TV soap "Coronation Street." He hasmore than 30pantomimes under his belt, as well as many memorable "Variety" and "West End" performances, and his radio career includes the hugely popular the "News Huddlines," which he starred in and ran for26 years."

In his autobiography he tells it like it is - or was - a no nonsense, but always entertaining and enjoyable excursion through the highways and byways of his life. I was a particular fan of his radio show - "The News Huddlines" - which always seemed to put a smile on my face with its infectious joie de vivre. Somehow life itself seems greyer and less comical than it did (we can only blame the government for about 90% of it) and perhaps its because our entertainers too have lost the ability to laugh at themselves - yet Roy never did, and we love him all the more for it. A great read.
