Comedian and king of the one-liner

Barry Cryer OBE | NMP Live

Barry Cryer has successfully combined two careers in show business - as a writer and performer.

As a writer he has written for practically every top comedian - past and present - in the country, including Morecambe and Wise, Bruce Forsyth, Tommy Cooper, Kenny Everett, Stanley Baxter, Dick Emery, Dave Allen, Frankie Howard, Les Dawson, Ronnie Barker, Ronnie Corbett, Mike Yarwood, Billy Connolly, Russ Abbot, Bobby Davro, Jasper Carrott, and many others.

He has contributed to some of the top entertainment shows which have won many awards including the Pye Light Entertainment, BAFTA, the Royal Society and The Press Guild. As a performer he has appeared on practically every panel game on television and radio including I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue - which recently completed its 30th series and has won the Sony Radio Award for Best Comedy Programme, amongst other accolades.

In 1990 Barry teamed up with old friend, the late Willie Rushton in their own show, Two Old Farts in the Night. They played for two seasons at the Edinburgh Festival and a forty date UK tour as well as releasing a video. Over the past few years, Barry has regularly performed his own one-man show, That Reminds Me, which was recently released on audio cassette.

Barry has established a reputation for nurturing new comedy talent, having hosted The Stand-up Show on BBC Television and the BBC New Comedy Awards. He has become one of the country's most popular after dinner speakers and hosts for corporate events. In November 2001 Barry was awarded an OBE.


Very impressed with both Barry Cryer and Peter Methab - Outstanding performances! Everything was flawless, much appreciated for the on-time attendance.
