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.
