As the voice of darts , the inimitable Sid Waddell helped transform it from an unfashionable pub game to a massively successful international sport. His uninhibited enthusiasm, classical allusions and memorable one-liners endeared him to millions. His son Dan Waddell grew up in this smoky, boozy world and witnessed Sid s turbulent journey from failed novelist and struggling TV producer to much-loved television personality.
We Had Some Laughs is Dan s warm, moving and funny account of Sid s colourful life and career and a son s memories of an unconventional dad. It is also a celebration of a way of life and a story of loss of people, places and times now gone or changed for ever. But, most of all, it s a story about fathers and sons, and the unshakeable bond between them.
