Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0715631578, Paperback)D.J. Taylor introduces the reader to comedy duo Ted King and Arthur Upward, who were for a brief period in the late 1970s, the best-loved comedians on British television. Ten million people watched the Upward & King Show every week and they rubbed shoulders with the stars for a few years – until the TV company pulled the plug. Twenty years later and prompted by a documentary being made about the famous partnership, Ted looks back on his years in the spotlight, always haunted by the fog-bound surroundings of his early life on the Norfolk coast. Taylor’s vivid evocation of post-war English life ranges in time and place from rainswept Norfolk seafronts in the 50s, to 60s Soho clubland, from bombs exploding in Cyprus to Oswald Mosley’s Daimler coursing through the East End.
