John Dowie is crowd-funding his memoirs on Unbound – telling the tale of a man who launched a comic career when no-one was interested, and walked away from it, just as the crowds (and the money) showed up. About a man who took to cycling ahead of the rest of us – but in baggy shorts, not Lycra, and eating lukewarm baked beans rather than performance gels. A man, in short, whose nature ensured he took a very different road. Literally.
And you can get involved in the story – support the book, get your name in there, get exclusive mementos (emphatically not ‘merchandise’), and even have John cycle to your door with your personal copy, followed by your personal story.
It’s an unmissable opportunity to support one of the lost legends of British comedy and to read a genuinely extraordinary life story.”
