BARRY CRYER

Barry Cryer and Ronnie Golden: Historical Objects: Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh, 2018

I have written a lot in my book of the same name about Barry Cryer because after all, he has written jokes for all the great comedians over the last fifty years or so.  His regular show that I saw again at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018 where he appeared alongside fellow stalwart Ronnie Golden featured well-crafted jokes delivered in pitch-perfect timing by the eighty-two year old comedy legend.

A day or so after seeing Cryer’s show at the Fringe, he was sitting having dinner in the same restaurant as myself and two friends.  As he got up to leave, I shook his hand and told him that we see his show every year at the Festival. As he walked out, he grinned at us warmly and said ‘You’re the ones!’ Genuis!
