Barry Cryer has collaborated with all the greats from Max Miller to Tony Hancock, Bob Hope, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, John Cleese, Frankie Howerd, Kenny Everett, Spike Milligan, Eric Sykes, Dave Allen, Richard Pryor, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Graham Chapman, the Two Ronnies, Morecambe and Wise - in fact almost all the great comedians and comic writers since the mid 1950s. This is his new collection of true, tall, stories from his fifty years in comedy. The underlying theme is how films affect your life. Ever since Barry saw Bluebird starring Shirley Temple in his local cinema in Leeds, he has been a devoted moviegoer. For example, he describes going to a preview of Psycho before anyone knew what they were in for. So this book is an account of a 'reel life', how Barry reacted, for example, to the 1953 Titanic, then to the 1958 version, A Night to Remember and then to James Cameron's blockbuster in 1997. Needless to say Barry knew actors and actresses in all three movies so his butterfly brain digresses from what is on the screen to his own life and anecdotage. More than that, BUTTERFLY BRAIN is extremely funny, and will delight all who made PIGS CAN FLY a runaway porcine bestseller.
