Dry wit, refreshing if not a bit dated now.
Yes, I would, Dickie Bird, Jon Pertwee, Brian Blessard who can not find them amusing.
Jon Pertwee is a great voice narrator and Brian Blessard just blows out the words. If you read the book and know their voices you would hear them rattle through your brain but hearing them is so much better.
Could not see this as a movie, but if a stand up or small group theatre most certainly.
Better for the older and wiser, scenes and stories are dated but still knowing each of the actors in this book from my TV screen it does take you back.
