Synopsis:
Frankie Howerd's risque jokes, double entendres and meandering anecdotes firmly established him as a national comedy treasure, with his television performances gaining huge ratings over nearly four decades. Some of his most successful shows were produced for ITV, and included here are six shows which reflect the ever-broadening appreciation of his comic genius - from the hugely popular variety shows of the seventies to the enthusiastically received routines on Britain's university campuses during the early nineties, confirming Frankie Howerd's status not only as a comedy icon but a cult hero embraced by a generation of young student aficionados.
With writing from Barry Cryer, Johnny Speight, Ray Galton, Alan Simpson and others this marvellous collection presents Frankie at his finest.
