I wrote an article about Bob Monkhouse a little while back which was warmly received. It’s nice then that I should stumble upon a lovely piece by Barry Cryer also about Bob. It can be read here on the BBC Comedy Blog and it’s well worth it. Like me, Barry worked with Bob and it makes me wonder what else we have in common. Is Barry’s preferred spirit of choice rum with a bit of coke in it? Does he struggle to find jeans long enough for his lanky legs? Does he believe that flip flops should only be worn by men on a beach and have no place as Saturday night attire in Camden Town? Alas, at the time of writing I am none the wiser.
