Frank Muir, one of Britain's most prolific comic writers, introduces his own selection of the best of 80 years of comic sketches. These are taken from the earliest music hall tradition before World War I, when the comedy sketch was an integral part of light entertainment, through its development for radio with shows such as "Take it From Here", to television, where it produced a wealth of writers. Thus, old-timers such as Robb Wilton and Harry Tate rub shoulders with the likes of Victoria Wood, Rowan Atkinson and John Cleese. This revised edition contains approximately 30% revised material including sketches previously unpublished and a new introduction by Frank Muir.
