Rolling around laughing

This autobiographical account of Monkhouse's work had me in stitches. He is surely the high priest of the one-liner!

Needed something...

I laughed! I also skipped some too... Lots of singing!
BUT - I was expecting more. It seems that there are HUGE chunks missing.
I was dissappointed - NOT by the comedy or Bob, but by the lack of information and the huge amount of signing in it.
