Linda Smith (1958-2006) was a national treasure and voted 'wittiest person alive' on Radio 4. From her childhood in Erith -- featuring her 'sweet smiling fascist grandmother' and holidays abroad (to the Isle of Wight) -- to her early stand-up days and comedy career, Warren Lakin recalls Linda's story and their life together. Warren was Linda's lover, companion and chauffeur from their first meeting, driving her to her tour, radio and TV gigs, and later to hospital appointments as her cancer took hold. This is the moving and often hilarious story of a life lived with wit, humour and grace under pressure.
Warren Lakin has worked as a comedy producer, promoter and agent and was Linda Smith's lover and constant companion for 23 years. In 2006 he co-authored I Think the Nurses are Stealing My Clothes: The Very Best of Linda Smith".
