'Arry and Edna

Two comedy features in national newspapers, both of them a joy to write: the first is an interview with Susannah Corbett about her biography of her father, the Steptoe actor Harry H Corbett. The book is called The Front End Of The Cow and it’s published by the History Press. This piece appeared in the Observer on Sunday 18 March.

The second feature had a marvellous spread on the Daily Mail’s op-ed page, on Tuesday 20 March. It’s a valediction for Dame Edna Everage, who is being retired by her creator Barry Humphries. She will be missed.
