Praise

“[An] incredible story… A richly rewarding read.” Time Out

“Marty was a grand talent. A comedic writing and acting legend that may never again be matched in terms of content and volume alone. Robert Ross’ love of the subject allowed you to get to know this troubled and tortured soul.” – Killer Reviews

“Every Saturday evening I would watch ‘The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine’. Igor in ’Young Frankenstein’ was written for Marty. I was thinking of him all the time. No-one else could have played that part.” - Gene Wilder 

“When you’re a comedy writer you pray for Marty Feldman. He not only met your material, he lifted it. He gave it that magic touch.” - Mel Brooks 

“Marty was the perfect comedy script editor. The veteran centre half who steered the new defence.” – Sir David Frost 

“Marty had one of the sharpest comedy brains in anybody I have ever met. He was a lovely man as well. Almost unique.” - Michael Palin CBE 

“He had a wonderful comedy presence. He is a true cultural icon.” - John Cleese 

“I love British comedy. I learnt from it. Marty Feldman was a genius. Crossed eyes are funny!” –Mike Myers
