Eric Sykes is one of Britain's creative comedy geniuses combining personal warmth, superbly observed written and performed comedy and a deeply intimate understanding of what a viewing audience wants. Here, he has assembled a comedy hall of fame for those who have inspired, entertained and most of all amused him. Including tributes to comedy greats - Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Ken Dodd, Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and many, many more, this is a beautiful and personal testimony to the wonderful characters who have stimulated Eric's life-long love affair with laughter.

A delight to leaf through, this is - like Sykes himself - a real class act * Film Review *

Born in Oldham in 1923 Eric Sykes was first introduced to showbusiness whilst in the RAF and went on to write for hit BBC radio shows and appear in TV variety shows whilst writing for comedy greats such as Peter Sellers and Frankie Howerd. Although he is over eighty, Sykes continues to work, having recently starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
