Remembering Bob Monkhouse

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A cracking collection of Bob's best bits from the BBC Radio and Television Archives. 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 here 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. 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' and 'Bob Says Opportunity Knocks'; reminiscences of his most famous radio and television performances, and examples of his work as a comedy writer, this compilation is the perfect tribute to the crown prince of mirth. This recording was previously released as 'Bob Monkhouse at the Beeb'.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
