Barry Cryer: Same Time Tomorrow?

By Bob Cryer

'I don't know how long I've got left... I don't even buy green bananas anymore'

When the legendary comedian Barry Cryer died in January 2022, there was a vast outpouring of grief, appreciation and anecdotes - from the general public and fellow comics alike. Now, his son, Bob, is doing what Barry's humility did not allow: revealing the story of the man behind the jokes.

This book is an ode to both Barry's incredible life and to the lessons he so generously imparted on the art of comedy during his sixty-year career. Stretching from the music halls of the fifties, via working alongside everyone from Morecambe & Wise to John Cleese and David Frost, and into more recent times as a stalwart of Radio 4's long-running I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, this book is a hugely entertaining insight into the life of a true comedy legend. Bob also shares a range of exclusive material unique to the Cryer family - including family photos, memorabilia, oral recordings, interviews with friends and colleagues (among them Sandi Toksvig, Rob Brydon and Judi Dench) - as well as Bob's own personal reflections on living and working with a comedy icon.

Laced with candour, warmth and filled with his trademark humour, Barry Cryer: Same Time Tomorrow? is not just a wonderfully witty and affectionate biography of a father by a son, but a heart-warming insight into a vanishing era of comedy.
