Ronnie Barker has long been known as one of Britain’s greatest comedy performers. But he was also responsible for writing much of the material he performed, often hiding the fact from the public by using a number of pen names. Showcasing the complete work of a true comic icon, All I Ever Wrote is a laugh-out-loud collection of sketches, monologues, songs, poems and scripts from every strand of Ronnie’s long and brilliant career.
With gems like ‘Fork Handle’s,’ Three Classes’ and ‘Pismonouncers Unanimous', Ronnie’s clever writing, double entendres and spoonerisms will bring a smile to your face, as you rediscover some of the twentieth century’s finest comedy moments.

What a lot of people don't know is that Ronnie Barker was responsible for writing most of the material he performed - whether solo, with Ronnie Corbett or in sitcom. The fact that he often hid behind a number of pen names may explain this... Ronnie is already loved by millions for his roles in Porridge, Open All Hours and that perennial worldwide hit, The Two Ronnies (which ran to 12 series). But now you can discover for yourself the wealth of his talent, from his early radio and Frost on Sunday sketches to classic monologues and the immortal songs, his (almost) silent films - including Futtock's End - to his final sitcom, Clarence, the play Mum and the previously unseen Rub a Dub Dub (Two Men in a Pub). You can't even look at this book without a smile coming to your face; open it up and you may never stop laughing.Book Description:
