He has been a plasterer, banjo player, stand-up comic, union agitator, political activist, film extra, award-winning actor, and unwilling guest of Her Majesty's prison service. Renowned and respected for his honesty, wit, and integrity, Ricky brings all of these qualities to his extraordinary and inspiring story.
