- Steve Wright and Barry Cryer
The doyen of British comedy writers, Barry Cryer is in conversation with Steve Wright as he looks back on 6 decades of a career with a list of writing credits that reads like a who's who of comedy. These include Les Dawson, Bruce Forsyth, Tommy Cooper, Morecambe & Wise, The Two Ronnies, Russ Abbot, Bobby Davro, Kenny Everett and many more.
Now in his 80th year, Barry is still very much in demand as a writer, performer in his frequent and regular farewell tours, and as a long serving panellist on BBC Radio 4's I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue.
Expect plenty of anecdotes on the many larger than life characters he has shared his professional life with over 6 decades in the entertainment world and a rare insight into the art and craft of the tough business of comedy writing.
