King of the one-liner Barry Cryer comes to Epsom Playhouse on Monday, July 14, at 7.45pm.

Bringing a new show crammed with gags, songs and stories, Barry promises show-goers "a decorous orgy of nostalgia" on his latest tour.

Bluntly entitled Still Alive, he will be drawing on his rich TV and radio career to pepper the proceedings with funnies and reminiscences drawn from more than four decades in showbiz.

As a writer he has penned scripts for a stellar company of comic talents including Morecambe and Wise, Les Dawson, Billy Connolly and Jasper Carrott.

Many will know him from his appearances on nearly every British TV panel game devised.

But arguably he is most affectionately known as a panellist on the long-running and multi-award-winning Radio Four game show I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, hosted by the late Humphrey Lyttelton.
