In this second part of his exploration of Peter Cook's life, Michael Palin trawls the back catalogue for his funniest and silliest moments, including much rare archive material that has never been previously broadcast. Here are some of the very best clips, monologues and sketches, including excerpts from Cook and Moore's taboo-breaking 'Derek and Clive' dialogues. There are also hilarious parodies of Malcolm Muggeridge and Loyd Grossman, radio phone-ins from 'Sven' and various interviews discussing his involvement with Private Eye. Insightful and irresistible, this is a fascinating exploration of the life and career of a seriously funny man.
A special live edition of the Penguin Podcast with comedian, actor, and writer Michael Palin is hosted by David Baddiel.
