Barry Cryer's Comedy Legends to return for a third series

Kenneth Williams and Norman Wisdom are among those who will feature in the third series of Barry Cryer's series Comedy Legends on Sky Arts.

British Comedy Guide, 7th September 2020

The opener of the first series of this show hosted by Barry Cryer is dedicated to Tommy Cooper, who was intrinsically funny enough to extract laughs from the corniest of puns and one-liners. Fellow comedians assess the singular act of this much imitated yet irreplaceable entertainer.
