The Bonus of Laughter Summary

The Bonus of Laughter by Leslie Crowther

One of television's most popular personalities, Leslie Crowther, is lucky to be alive. In 1992 he was involved in a near-fatal car accident from which only months of intricate surgery, nursing skill and the devotion of his family could bring him back. Now on his way to full recovery, he looks back on a life which has already had its fair share of incident. Working his way through theatre, variety review and radio, Leslie Crowther's television break-through came with the children's show Crackerjack. Since then he has been seen regularly on television hosting such games shows as "The Price is Right" and "Stars in Their Eyes". Yet behind the scenes, as Leslie vividly describes, he was fighting a long battle against alcoholism. Through good and bad he has been supported by his great loves - his wife Jean and their five children and grandchildren. His moving story is written with warmth, entertainment and a rare honesty which shows, above all, "the bonus of laughter".
