Mike Harding, Les Barker, Gary Hogg, Max Boyce, Bernard Wrigley, Bob Newhart and many other modern-day proclaimers continue the glorious monologue tradition...

Featuring a few names you wouldn't normally associate with comic verse - so enjoy Eric Idle's 'Wife-Swapping Party' or Denis Healey's 'Ode To Westminster'...
Read the gripping tale of 'White Willie' the heroic one-legged horse or gasp at Old Jeff, dragged from beneath his steam-roller and folded neatly before being put to bed!!!

Take a ride on 'The 11:69 Express', read the hair-curling 'Engineer's Tale' or enjoy 'Casey's Billy-Goat'.
Have a few giggles with the lads and lasses of the armed forces at home and away, in war and in peace.

Discover the fate of the 'Cabbage Rose', the good ship ' Glue-Pot' and the 'Whats-Her-Name'... and read, with awe, the tale of 'The Diagonal Steam-Trap' and the legend of 'The Million Tonne Tanker'.

Fakespeare... I imagine the poor old bard must be Spinning in his grave, right now!

Go riding, riding, riding with 'Dick Turpentine' or enjoy 'The End of the Raven' by Edgar Allen Poe's cat. All the usual apologies will apply.

Do you remember those black and white film shorts of the 1950s/60s with Cyril Fletcher, and others, warning of the hazards of 'Coughs and Sneezes' or 'Posting early for Christmas'... and, of course, poor little 'Gertie' who wouldn't wash her hands!
