The quintessential grumpy old man, Barry Cryer's standup combines the quick wit of Radio 4 with the charm and class of the "Great Men of Comedy". He has been a regular panelist on I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and Just a Minute, the latter of which he also chaired. In 1998, Barry wrote his autobiography, You Won't Believe This But..., which has been broadcast on Radio 4.
"Fantastic ~ laughs from the start..."
Barry Cryer has collaborated with all the greats from Max Miller to Tony Hancock, Bob Hope, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, John Cleese, Frankie Howerd, Kenny Everett, Spike Milligan, Eric Sykes, Dave Allen, Richard Prior, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Graham Chapman, the Two Ronnies, Morecambe and Wise - in fact, almost all the great comedians and comic writers since the mid 1950s.
Inspired nonsense and pointless revelry, it's time for another helping of the antidote to panel games, I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. In this ninth collection, the gang returns for further moments of mayhem, puns, and one-liners; not forgetting a healthy dose of innuendo and double entendre.
You'd better watch out, you'd better not cry, you'd better not pout, I'm telling you why: here, for the first time on audio, is the acclaimed, award-winning Christmas 'Clue' special I'm Sorry I Haven't a Christmas Carol.

Kenny Everett was one of radio’s great innovators, the funniest DJ of our time and a one-off whose madcap comedy burst the boundaries of broadcasting.

Together again for the first time: Barry Cryer and Ronnie Golden, two icons of rock and...droll! Songs, jokes, and a commentary on our times. Who could ask for anything less.
