After the death of legendary comedian and writer Barry Cryer, this is a tribute to the much-loved and respected man.

Jack Dee, host of I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue (the Radio 4 panel show that Barry was a key part of) will present this tribute packed full of warm recollections of a man whose passion for fun, comics and comedy was renowned. Writing for some of the all time comedy greats like Morecambe and Wise and Kenny Everett, "Baz" as he was known by many, was an encyclopaedic jokesmith and was well known for his regular calls to comics to compliment their work and share favourite gags. We'll hear from many of them in this programme.
