Now, Where Were We? with Barry Cryer and Bob Cryer

Now, Where Were We? with Barry Cryer and Bob Cryer

By Barry Cryer and Bob Cryer

Now, Where Were We? is the show that Barry Cryer has been waiting 86 years to make! 


Alongside his son, actor and writer Bob Cryer, Barry's booked a room at a favourite London pub, called up a bunch of famous pals he's not seen since lockdown began, and he's invited them down for a pint and a proper catch-up. This is Barry at his storytelling best, in his natural habitat, doing what he’s done for decades: making us laugh. 


There is some very explicit language used in punchlines from time to time, but Barry's nearly 90, so it's sort of delightful, isn't it?
