Barry Cryer - Biography

Barry Charles Cryer OBE (born 23 March 1935) is a British writer and comedian. Cryer has written for many noted performers, including Dave Allen, Stanley Baxter, Jack Benny, Rory Bremner, George Burns, Jasper Carrott, Tommy Cooper, Les Dawson, Dick Emery, Kenny Everett, Bruce Forsyth, David Frost, Bob Hope, Frankie Howerd, Richard Pryor, Spike Milligan, Mike Yarwood, The Two Ronnies and Morecambe and Wise.
Cryer was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, England. His family is Jewish. Educated at Leeds Grammar School, he went on to study English Literature at the University of Leeds. He has lived in Hatch End, near Pinner, in the borough of Harrow, since 1967.

However, Cryer suffered severely from eczema and, after a number of periods in hospital, was released from his contract by Van Damm. Concluding that a performing career was not a wholly sustainable income choice because of his skin condition, Cryer chose to focus mainly on writing – something he could do even when suffering eczema attacks, which he did for the next eight years.
On 13 July 2017, Cryer received an Honorary Degree of Doctor of Letters (honoris causa) from the University of Leeds. The degree was conferred by the Chancellor, Melvyn Bragg.
