From the cover: Over his fifty-year career 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 Alien, Richard Pryor, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Graham Chapman, the Two Ronnies, Morecambe and Wise in fact pretty much all the best comedians and comic writers since the mid-1950s.
If this was not enough, he has also collaboratively JH penned series like Hello Cheeky! and is a panellist on Im Sorry I Havent A Clue.
