From the moment that the 19-year-old Ronnie Barker threw up his steady job in a bank for life as an actor in a "rep" theatre, he knew where he belonged. This biography tells the story of Ronnie Barker's years in repertory before the advent of television.
He reveals how his trousers got entangled in the sofa springs during a passionate love scene, how he splits Jessie Matthew's dress from top to bottom when the worse for drink and how he has to walk home from Penzance (275 miles) when his touring company goes bust. Ronnie Barker is the author of "Sauce", "Gentleman's Relish",
"Ooh La La!", "The Ladies of Paris", "Pebbles on the Beach" and "It's Hello from Him".
