Comedy without Galton and Simpson would be like literature without Dickens. (Harry Enfield)

An excellent guide to two of Britain's sitcom pioneers. A must-buy for fans of classic comedy. (Paul Merton)

Galton and Simpson are The Beatles of British comedy - they changed everything. (Frank Skinner)

In Christopher Stevens their achievements have found a perceptive and sympathetic chronicler (Sunday Express)

Breathtakingly funny (Matt Lucas and David Walliams)

Descriptive and informative narrative written by an obvious enthusiast of their work (Tony Hancock Archives Newsletter)
