Publisher's Summary

Bruce Forsyth is known across four generations as the "face" of family entertainment classics such as The Generation Game, Play Your Cards Right, and The Price is Right. His is an amazing story that spans more than two-thirds of the 20th century.

In the late 1950s, over half of Britain would tune into Sunday Night at the London Palladium, making Bruce a star in a few weeks. But it had been a long slog since his debut as 14-year-old "Boy Bruce the Mighty Atom" in 1942, then wartime work for the Red Cross and National Service after, and playing every theatre, concert party, summer season, double act, and review known to man. He's been at the very top ever since.

Bruce's first-ever account of his whole life is chock full of anecdotes, honest appraisals of tough times, failed marriages and affairs, comments on entertainment today, and what it takes to be a comedian at the height of his powers.

"In the gameshow of life, Brucie hasn't just won the TV, the golf clubs, and the hostess trolley. He's won the cuddly toy as well." (Mirror)

    "Bruce"

    A good insight into the life of Bruce, with typical humour.
    My only gripe is that he seems to catch a cold 2/3rds of the way through, and consequently his voice changes! Quite off putting.

    "Bruce"

    I was a little disappointed with this . I have always liked Bruce Forsyth , particularly for his humour and cheerful attitude. He read this in a rather boring manner , as if he was reading off a list of his life's events with not much humour.
