As an English entertainer, he was also a successful comedy writer, comedian and actor and was well known on British television as a presenter and game show host. Monkhouse was famous for his quick ad-lib and one-liner jokes.

Bob Monkhouse was born in Beckenham, Kent the son of Wilfred Adrian Monkhouse, who died in 1957 and Dorothy Muriel Monkhouse nee Hansard. Monkhouse's father was a prosperous Methodist businessman who owned Monk and Glass, which made custard!

And so to this very location - 'Dulwich College' - where Bob spent his school days, and from which he was later expelled. Bob wrote for the comics The Beano and The Dandy and subsequently drew for Hotspur, Wizard and Adventure comics. Among other writing, he wrote more than 100 Harlem Hotspots porn novelettes...
