A cracking collection of Bob's best bits from the BBC radio and television archives

'I'm one of those movie-buff people. I like movies of people in the buff!'

One of the best gagsters in the business, Bob Monkhouse had audiences hooting at his amazing verbal dexterity for over fifty years. From his classic stand-up routines to his role as the avuncular, wise-cracking host of numerous game shows, he was loved by the public and paid the sincere compliment of being imitated by countless impressionists.

His death in 2003 deprived the entertainment world of a great talent, but collected on this CD release are the highlights of his illustrious career: the quick-fire gags, the perilous puns, the one-liners, the songs and the patter that made Monkhouse the master of his art - the comic's comic.

Enjoy an exclusive insight into the mind of a comedy genius as Bob Monkhouse looks back on his extensive career in showbusiness. With clips from classic programmes like The Saturday Show, Here's Bob Monkhouse and Bob Says Opportunity Knocks; reminiscences of his most famous radio and television performances, and examples of his work as a comedy writer for personalities like Arthur Askey, this compilation is the perfect tribute to the crown prince of mirth.

It's Bob at his very best.

Bob Monkhouse and Dennis Berson, David Gumming, Derek Collyer, Denis Goodwin, Andre de Launay, Terence Pettigrew
