If I don’t write it, nobody else will – Dispo ICI
‘Some people walk on stage and the audience warms to them. You can’t explain it, and you shouldn’t try. It’s an arrogant assumption to say you ‘decide’ to become a comedian. The audience decides for you.’ Eric Sykes, December 2001

From 1959 until her death in 1980, Syke’s starred with Hattie Jacques in one of Britain’s best loved sitcoms ‘Sykes and A …’ Throughout the two decade run of this show he continued to work alongside a host of stars including Charlie Drake, Tommy Cooper, Tony Hancock, Spike Milligan, Johnny Speight, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson.
