A Stupid Boy - Jimmy Perry

A Stupid Boy - Jimmy Perry

From the creator of Dad's Army comes a fascinating and highly entertaining autobiography packed full with the people, stories and experiences that inspired many of the characters and scenes from this much-loved comedy. But it doesn't just stop with Dad's Army. Jimmy Perry is also responsible for the other hugely popular British comedies It Ain't Half Hot Mum, Hi-De-Hi! and You Rang, M'Lord?.

A Stupid Boy is Jimmy's story from his early years growing up in London, his experiences in the Watford Home Guard, as a Gunner in Burma, as a member of the Royal Artillery Concert Party that travelled the Indian subcontinent entertaining the troops, as a Redcoat in Butlins, at RADA, in show business and much, much more. Read all Jimmy's fantastic stories as he relates, as only he can, the amazing real-life experiences that inspired the key ingredients of the comedies we have all come to know and love.

Funny, witty and highly enjoyable, and fully illustrated with over a hundred fascinating and exclusive photographs, A Stupid Boy is a must for all fans of Dad's Army, Jimmy Perry, and his work.
