Barry Cryer

Revealing the story of the man behind the jokes, this book is an ode to both Barry’s incredible life and to the lessons he so generously imparted on the art of comedy during his 60-year career. Stretching from the music halls of the 50s, via working alongside everyone from Morecambe and Wise to John Cleese and David Frost, and into more recent times as a stalwart of Radio 4’s long-running ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’, this book is a hugely entertaining insight into the life of a true comedy legend. Bob, Barry’s son, also shares a range of exclusive material unique to the Cryer family – including family photos, memorabilia, oral recordings, interviews with friends and colleagues (among them Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon and Judi Dench) – as well as Bob’s own personal reflections on living and working with a comedy icon.
