Books Info:

Turned Out Nice Again free pdf Hugely entertaining and packed with new stories, "Turned Out Nice Again" is the first single volume history of British light entertainment. "Turned Out Nice Again" celebrates the work of the performers and impresarios who, from the 1930s onwards, pushed the creative boundaries of radio and then television to bring ground-breaking variety shows to a new audience. He demonstrates how the performances of Britain's best-loved entertainers, including "The Crazy Gang", "Shirley Bassey", "Tommy Cooper" and "The Two Ronnies", were conceived, written and then filmed, often in front of a live audience and under extreme space and time restrictions. With a cast of thousands, including Peter Cook, Ken Dodd, Dusty Springfield, Spike Milligan, Rolf Harris, Bruce Forsyth and Reeves and Mortimer, "Turned Out Nice Again" reveals a world of comedians and cavorters, dancing girls and crooners. From the early days of vaudeville, via the golden age of radio, live television spectaculars, the rise of the chat show and alternative comedy, Louis Barfe pulls back the curtain of variety to reveal the world of light entertainment in all its glory.
