Brian Johnston was the Mirth Miser,' writes Roy Hudd in his preface to this volume. 'He loved, cherished and hoarded jokes but, unlike Scrooge, he generously shared them with whoever would give him a hearing...' Brian Johnston was not only one of the greatest broadcasters of his generation but also one of the funniest and most popular raconteurs and after-dinner speakers.
Collecting and recounting jokes and stories was a lifetime's pastime and passion.
I Say, I Say, I Say is the collection of favourite old jokes - the hoarier the better - and anecdotes from all walks of life, including his beloved cricket, which Johnners had made just before his death in 1994.
Compiled in a mood of roguish hilarity, this delightful little book will ensure that Johnners - who contributed so much to the gaiety of nations - will do what he always set out to do: leave 'em laughing.
