Abstract:

"To his many friends as well as his legion of fans, Peter Cook was quite simply the funniest man ever. His unique gifts, the way he led the transformation of British comedy (from music hall to perverse absurdity), and his clear comic influence on Monty Python's Flying Circus and every show since, have been much written about. But never before has there been a collection of Cook's own writings." "Tragically I Was an Only Twin gathers the treasures of Cook's comic career, from school and university via the satirical revue Beyond the Fringe, where he performed alongside Alan Bennett, Jonathan Miller, and Dudley Moore, to his surreal, satirical journalism for Private Eye. It includes his monologues, the cream of his irreverent essays, and highlights from his much celebrated partnerships with Dudley Moore as Pete & Dud and Derek & Clive. Illustrated with his own drawings, this is the first, the only, and certainly the definitive collection of the transformative genius of comedy that was Peter Cook."--BOOK JACKET.
