Mick Miller is often referred to as The bald guy with the long hair and is well known for his famous Noddy routine. This book tells the story of the journey from his childhood in Liverpool to his acclaimed performance at The Royal Variety Show in front of The Princess Royal. It takes us through his days as a goalkeeper at Port Vale where the legendary Stanley Matthews signed him. We learn of his days as a Pontin's Blue Coat and how he became a comedian in his own right. We find out how that Noddy routine came about and how he found himself on New Faces and The Comedians. Mick Miller is not an Old School comedian stuck in a 1980s time warp. He works hard to keep his act fresh and up to date and, because of that, he is still very relevant today and is equally at home in comedy clubs, cruise ships and theatres. He still has the drive and ambition that he had when he started out and relishes new challenges. This is the story of his life so far.

...We travelled on Thomson Destiny on it's first mediteranian cruise of 2006 on May 4th. We had cruised on this ship previously when it was owned by Airtours and named Sunbird. The Destiny is the biggest in the Thomson fleet. I must say the improvements under the Thomson brand were very much evident.
As this was our honeymoon we booked two 1 week cruises, back to back. This cost us about £1...
