As one of the most consistently funny radio series of the 1960s, Round The Horne was always a favourite among listeners to the BBC Light Programme's comedy hour on Sundays. With its colourfully bizarre collection of characters and memorable catchphrases, its brilliantly inventive and sometimes outrageous scripts, Round The Horne was a unique chapter in the history of radio comedy. Ramling Syd Rumpo, Julian and his 'friend' Sandy, Charles and Fiona, Gruntfuttock, Daphne Whitethigh, and many more, they're all here in two classic shows, plus a hilarious compilation from some of the very best programmes. One listen and the memories will come flooding back.More

Before Python there was Horne
It is (mostly) extremely funny
Not applicable (unless you mean Kenneth Horne as the compere. In which case, his deadpan, amused-bank-manager-in-a-comedy-sketch persona is unbeaten).
Not a book
Before Python and around the time of the Goons there was Round the Horne. The sketches and songs performed by, among others, Kenneth Williams pushed the boundaries of what the censor would allow in those days and comparatively, makes todays 'risky' comedians look like a little boy running up and shouting bum at his granny.
Good to hear some of the old humour
