Seems Like A Nice Boy



The story of Larry Grayson

Having spent his early years performing with a drag act in working men's clubs all over the Midlands, in 1971, Larry Grayson was seen performing as a stand-up comedian in London by Michael Grade, then an entertainment promoter.

Grade offered Larry a 6-minute slot at the London Palladium, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Despite fame and fortune, Grayson remained devoted to his adopted home town of Nuneaton in Warwickshire, and lived there for most of his life.

In this profile of Larry Grayson, ten years after his death, the broadcaster Jim Lee, Nuneaton-born and bred himself, recalls a comedian whose gently camp and inoffensive humour delighted audiences of all ages.

Includes contributions from Michael Grade, Terry Wogan, Isla St Clair and Larry Grayson's nephew and biographer Mike Malyon.
