Personal Quote:

The real pressure came when I was sat in front of that typewriter with all those blank pages and there was a deadline and there was nothing happening. That's when you realised there were 20 million or 25 million people looking over your shoulder - all saying 'Make me laugh'. [on writing for each year's Morecambe and Wise Christmas special]

Trivia:

He was best known as the third man behind the success of Morecambe and Wise. See more »
