I Didn't Get Where I Am Today (Paperback, New Ed): David Nobbs I Didn't Get Where I Am Today (Paperback, New Ed)
David Nobbs 2
R175 R138 Discovery Miles 1 380 Save R37 (21%) Special order

A small boy at the time the Second World War broke out, David Nobbs has the distinction of being covered in his bedroom ceiling when the last bomb to be dropped on Britain by the Germans landed in his street. It was the nearest he came to the war but conscription was to bring him into close contact with the army. The experience was unforgettable. Later, as a struggling writer, David was catapulted into the thrilling world of satire at the BBC when he rang That Was The Week That Was with a joke and got through to David Frost, who sent a taxi for the joke, and later one for Nobbs himself. He never looked back. His greatness as a modern comic writer was confirmed by the publication of The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, which he adapted for the immensely successful television series which has entered the fabric of British cultural life, through phrases, images and brilliant humour. A mesmerising, beautifully told tale of a life in writing and comedy, I Didn't Get Where I Am Today is David Nobbs' story: hilarious, poignant, capturing a golden age of British television and describing some of the most famous comedians of the last century.
