About The Speaker...
Having extensively toured the country, and lectured across the world on cruise ships, respected author and comedy historian Robert Ross (author of The Carry On Companion), brings you a variety of laughter and social history to celebrate comedy at it’s best.
Robert has been a presenter on Talking Pictures TV and many Channel 5 documentaries. In addition, he is the Carry On Films official historian.
He recently set up an association of writers called Write On Comedy where literature and laughter meet. This has allowed him to curate his own comedy themed exhibitions, book festivals and themed days.
