Comedy legend Barry Cryer (@barrycryer80) is launching his first podcast alongside his son, actor and writer Bob Cryer (@bobbicee). Now, Where Were We? sees the 86-year-old bringing his trademark blend of wit and silliness to podcasting. Having booked an upstairs room at The Green Man public house in London, Bob called up some of Barry’s friends that he’s not seen since the lockdown began and invited them down for a pint and a proper catch-up.
And everyone he asked came running. Stephen Fry, Joe Brown, Miriam Margoyles, Gyles Brandreth, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Danny Baker and Rebecca Front immediately raced down to spend a joyful couple of hours with the grand old man of British comedy.
For the listeners, it’s a thrilling chance to pop down the pub with a comedy legend, surrounded by old friends, telling an endless stream of stories, anecdotes and jokes. With Bob on hosting duties, it also provides a unique insight into his family life, with some more personal anecdotes from the great man.
This is Barry at his storytelling best – in his natural habitat – just making us laugh.
It turns out Now, Where Were We? is the show that Barry has been waiting 86 years to make! ________________________________
“I’ve really loved putting this show together for Dad. It’s been a rare chance for the family to celebrate his joy of good conversation – swapping anecdotes and silliness with the people he loves most. Plus, Mum was happy to get him out of the house whilst Eggheads was on.”
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be making a podcast and I’ll be even happier when I find out what one is.”
“It’s been great fun getting everyone together to do this. Although to be honest, at my age, I don’t plan that far ahead. I don’t even buy green bananas.”
