About The Speaker...
I am retired comedy writer. I spent 35 years of my life working in the world of British television, stage and radio, and even, on odd occasions, for foreign broadcasters. I provided the words for a long and glittering succession of star comedy performers, and others who perhaps were not quite so glittering.
The stars I have written scrips for include Bob Monkhouse, David Jason, Rowan Atkinson, Anne Robinson, Russ Abbott, The Two Ronnies, Griff Rhys Jones, Pamela Stephenson and, not to be overlooked, Basil Brush.
I was one of the major contributors to Not the Nine O’clock News, and latterly spent ten years in a two-man writing partnership with the late and great Clive James composing the scripts for multiple series of the Clive James Show.
About Their Talks...
I offer a 50-60 minute presentation, tracing my career, recalling both successes and disasters, all spiked with stories about the eccentric individuals you saw on your screen in the Eighties, the Nineties and the Noughties. I get most of my laughs by showing video clips of some of my successful sketches. I have all my own equipment – screen, projector, speakers, etc
I ask £80 – negotiable and depending on travel.
