Nearly Famous: Adventures of an After-Dinner Speaker, Paperback Book

Nearly Famous: Adventures of an After-Dinner Speaker Paperback


Firmly established in the world of entertainment, The Cat's route to fame has been through corporate and sporting dinners.

He grew up loving sport and perservered despite having only one eye and an almost total absence of natural ability.

His reputation as a figure of fun and his readiness to laugh at his own failures have reaped rich rewards. How many of us have played football with Bobby Moore and George Best at Wembley, or played at Lord's, or written a poem teasing the Duke of Edinburgh for never recognising us?

In Nearly Famous, The Cat writes hilariously of the many famous people he has worked with - everyone from Colin Cowdrey, Bobby Robson and Terry Venables to Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Billy Connolly, Eric Morcambe and Brian Johnston - and the highs and lows of that most serious of businesses: making people laugh.
