eYE Marty : my life in words and pictures by Marty Feldman( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Completed before he died, thirty years ago, this is the newly discovered autobiography of one of the most influential comedians of recent times, Marty Feldman. Marty was a professional writer, and considered himself a writer first, and an actor second. Feldman created a number of immensely successful and influential shows such as Marty, The Frost Report and sketches for Monty Python. He was one of the most essential creative forces in British comedy embodied also by his close friends and creative partners from Beyond the Fringe (especially Peter Cook and Dudley Moore) and Monty Python (especially John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Eric Idle). Marty played the fool, often very happily and with tremendous talent and volcanic, anarchic energy, for his entire life. His face is what many people most immediately remember. It was a face that David Frost, one of his bosses, characterised as 'too grotesque' for television - see what Feldman has to say about Frost, and Francis Bacon, and John Lennon...Marty Feldman finished, and set aside Eye Marty soon before travelling to Mexico to shoot his final film. He did not know that he would die there, although he certainly felt he might die soon, and was haunted by the notion. The book is exactly as Feldman wrote it, his great friend Mark Flanagan, had it transcribed, with even the photos inserted where Feldman had noted where they should go. Hilarious, deeply charming, aphoristic, ironic, charged throughout with lust for life and filled with scenes of great vanished eras and and portraits of other performers and friends, eYE Marty is the amazing discovery of the story of a man who was at the heart of the British comedy revolution

From the lunatic antics of Spike Milligan and Marty Feldman, to the visual gags of Eric Sykes and hilarious characters of Dick Emery - when it comes to the greats of British comedy, these four 'gentlemen' are at the peak of comic inventiveness and brilliance. This four disc set brings together their very best sketches and performances at the BBC. Spike Milligan: Some remember him from The Goons, but his work on television stamped Spike Milligan's surreal, chaotic and devastatingly funny humour on the world's imagination. This compilation features assorted lunacy from the best of his BBC shows with Spike also interviewed about his career. Dick Emery: From toothy Vicars, busty blondes and 'div' skinheads, to camp honky tonkers and the sexually frustrated 'Miss Hettie', Who doesn't remember the eclectic characters which filled The Dick Emery Show week after week? They're all here in this compilation from his long-running television series. Oooh you are awful! Eric Sykes: Visual humour and awkward situations were Eric Sykes' trademark. His BBC series 'Sykes' ran for several years and this collection of classic footage features hilarious moments with the help of the larger than life Hattie Jacques. Marty Feldman: Zany, but clever slapstick were the tools of famed goggle-eyed comedian Marty Feldman and these clips from his BBC series showcase his unique style that recalls the era of silent comedy, with many penned by the likes of John Cleese and Michael Palin
