Subject:        Bob Monkhouse

Today's Guardian obituary for the 'much-loved' comedian and TV gameshow
host Bob Monkhouse mentioned that, in between TV and stage appearances,
writing more than 100 porn novels, and selling gags to Bob Hope, he was
responsible for the 'Peptalk Polonius serial'.  I'm assuming that the
Shakespearean connection is either laughable or non-existent, but does
anyone have any information on this?

'They laughed when I said I was going to become  a comedian.  They're
not laughing now.'
