9780099443254: TRAGICALLY I WAS AN ONLY TWIN: THE COMEDY OF PETER COOK

To his many friends as well as his legion of fans, Peter Cook was quite simply the funniest man ever. His unique gifts and the way he led the transformation of British comedy (from music hall to perverse absurdity) and his clear comic influence on Monty Python's Flying Circus and every show since, has been much written about. But never before has there been a collection of Cook's own writings.

Tragically, I Was an Only Twin gathers the treasures of Cook's comic career, from school and university via Beyond the Fringe alongside Alan Bennett, Jonathan Miller, and Dudley Moore, to his sureal, satirical journalism for Private Eye. It includes his monologues, the cream of his irreverent essays, and highlights from his much celebrated partnerships with Dudley Moore as Pete & Dud and Derek & Clive. Illustrated with his own drawings, this is the first, the only, and certainly the definitive collection of the transformative genius of comedy that was Peter Cook.

About the Author:

Peter Cook was a founding member of Beyond the Fringe, wrote widely, and performed memorably on stage and film until his death in 1995.

William Cook, unrelated, is an author and journalist who has worked for the BBC, and written for several major newspapers in England.

From Booklist:

Though a naturally gifted clown, Cook (1937-95) remains overshadowed by the much more successful Dudley Moore (1935-2002) and the other members of the revolutionary, early-1960s revue, Beyond the Fringe, Alan Bennett and Jonathan Miller, who remain vitally active in theater. This collection of Cook's better sketches and scribblings argues that he deserves better. From the beginning, when he wrote to crack up his classmates, he was brilliant, attesting to the iconoclasm that was the dominant tone of Beyond the Fringe and gave weight to Cook's duo performances with Moore. Even in his declining years, when he was paying the price of a lavish, alcohol-soaked lifestyle, Cook remained an able, gifted comic who tossed off winning punch lines with disarming ease. The anthology samples from all phases of Cook's creative life, and editor Cook, no relation, provides enough biographical material to make one wish he would essay a biography of this comic genius.

Descripción Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For his many friends and fans, Peter Cook was quite simply the funniest man they d ever encountered. And nearly eight years since his death, his status as one of Britain s greatest comedians shows no sign of shrinking. Despite his reputation for idleness, Peter Cook was a great comedy writer, who created countless outrageous sketches and articles and was famed for his prolific role in the satire boom of the 1960s. The very best, the most famous and some of the most unusual of his comic masterpieces are collected here. Some of these pieces have never been published before, others are out of print, a few only survive in print, and many have only ever been seen or heard - never read. This collection ranges from Cook s first writing, at school and university, via Beyond The Fringe, with Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett and Jonathan Miller, his dualogues with Moore as Pete Dud and Derek Clive, and their brilliant TV series, Not Only But Also, to transcripts of his late, great TV appearances, and a selection of his journalism for the Daily Mail, the Evening Standard and Private Eye.
