Harry Pope started writing in the 1980s for London Weekend Television for their Who do You Do impressionist show, as well as Weekending for Radio Four, and then decided that the day job as a funeral director paid more when the boss came calling with a promotion. He only returned to writing in 2003, and has written magazine articles, material for minor comedians, and regular (non paid) articles for the Peterborough column in the Daily Mail. He has twice been chairman of his local writers’ circle and is still very active writing in the Eastbourne area. He is a grandfather of three young ladies, and has been married to Pam for almost 38 years. This has been a success mainly because she laughs at his jokes in company as if she hasn’t heard them before.
