Here, in a selection of interviews and speeches, Hoffnung talks about his life of hilarity with all the gravity and seriousness he can muster.
In the Charles Richardson interviews from Saturday Night on the Light, Hoffnung reveals many facets of his personal life, from his pet octopus to his hobby of hunting people who hunt. He also recounts the tale of his former housekeeper, a hedgehog, and a lavatory brush.
He tells the famous bricklayer story in his Oxford Union speech and talks about his early life, his interest in film, and of course, his undying love of music.
A must for all Hoffnung fans.

"the barrell is as good as it gets."
all apart from the barrel which is still really funny.
missed out all the interview scenario in part one.
there isn't a problem with the narrator which is gerrard Hoffnung.
still love "the barrel".
"Dated but still can provide amusement."
This is a very dated recording, and won't be for everybody, but the stories contained within are amusing.
