For more than twenty-five years Frank Muir, in partnership with Denis Norden, produced some of the most sparkling and original comedy ever written for radio and television. Later, working at the BBC and then at London Weekend Television, he produced some of the most popular tv comedy of the 60's and 70's.From his very first joke at the age of six, Frank Muir knew that his destiny was to make people laugh. He also knew from an early age that he wanted to write, but it took a childhood illness for him to discover that humour and writing could be combined. The death of his father forced him to leave school at the age of fourteen and work in a factory making carbon paper.But it was during the Second World War, as an air photographer in the RAF, that he really began his career as scriptwriter and performer. At his demob in 1945 he moved naturally to London and the Windmill Theatre, before joining the BBC, the legendary partnership with Denis Norden, and half a century of fulfilling the boyhood ambition of that Kentish Lad. This 1998 Corgi Books Paperback is in Very Good condition.
