Details

'It's a great missing piece of the jigsaw - people go on endlessly about Python and Peter Cook, which is all well and good but there's basically this great corpus of work stretching for decades - and consistently good...A major piece of work, and universally loved'. So says John Lloyd, brains behind "Blackadder", "QI", "Spitting Image", and so much besides - all shows with a massive debt to "I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again" and "I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue". Together they form a body of work stretching across five decades, from Cambridge in 1960 to today's world-beating "Antidote" to "Panel Games", a laughter-bringer which has inspired unparalleled adoration in millions over fifty series. This book tells the whole story, from Footlights to Broadway to the ferret-filled madness of Radio Prune - comedy's answer to the rock & roll revolution of the sixties. Offering an exhaustive guide to the comedy world that brought us 'Mornington Crescent', besides episode guides, glossaries and rare facsimiles, Jem Roberts will take the story right up to the present day, celebrating the lives of Willie Rushton, Sir David Hatch and of course, the irreplaceable Humphrey Lyttelton. With exclusive input from the Teams, plus Bill Oddie, Stephen Fry, Bill Bailey, Neil Innes and many more, this is the long overdue authoritative, entertaining and above all, very silly lasting celebration of an unsung comic legacy that both shows so richly deserve.
