This is a completely original and beautifully designed book on Eric Morecambe, one of the UK’s best-loved entertainers. Containing diary entries, unseen photographs and personal letters, this is the most revealing book yet on Morecambe.
Posthumously voted 'Comedian of the Century' in 1999 and reaching number 4 in the recent 'Comedian's Comedian Top 50' on Channel 4, Eric Morecambe remains one of Britain's greatest and best-loved comedians.
But even at the height of his success, Eric Morecambe feared his days were numbered as one half of Britain's best-loved comedy duo. It was a dread that had afflicted his whole career, according to his taped diaries, which emerged for the first time at the end of 2004 on the Channel 4 documentary, ‘The Unseen Eric Morecambe’. The programme was praised both by critics and the general public and it served to renew interest in Morecambe’s career and in the man himself.
Containing 15,000 words of unseen diary entries, 200 unseen pictures, jokes and sketches, and letters to both Ernie and Eric himself, everything in this book is 100% personal and original, offering an exclusive insight into a comedic genius who was plagued with self-doubt.
The book condition is fair, there are a few marks on the outer cover, the corners are very slightly bent but the inner pages are clean and unmarked.
