Publisher's Summary

The An Audience with... series will bring you a succession of live performances by some of Britain's best-loved comedians, opening with Barry Cryer, one of the stalwarts of Radio 4.

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.

Barry is also famous for having written gags for some of the legends of British comedy, including Morecambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, Stanley Baxter, Dick Emery, Dave Allen, Les Dawson, Bob Hope, Kenny Everett, Sir Harry Secombe, Billy Connolly, Jasper Carrot, and Richard Pryor.

With a CV that reads like the "Who's Who of British Comedy Greats", Cryer's unique blend of old-school gentility and cutting edge intellect facilitates an audience-base that spans generations.

Fantastic ~ laughs from the start...

After finding I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue on R4 a few years back, I began to learn just how clever and funny Barry is, this audiobook doesn't fail to make me laugh every time I hear it.

Be prepared to laugh aloud......

Barry Cryer is surely one of our comedy treasures, his wit and ability to create humor from every conceivable angle of our lives is legend. His recollection of past comedic events in his life is truly brilliant, as too are the other comics he has worked with or written for. He is surely head of the table at my comics dinner party. Thank you audible for the laughs!

So Underrated

Barry Cryer is the consummate professional and very funny but seemingly lost to the mainstream audience. I loved this performance
