On this week's special edition of the Comedy Café hear Janice Forsyth in conversation with Nicholas Parsons, recorded live at the Royal Concert Hall's recent Aye Write event in Glasgow, his "adopted home". Nicholas tells Janice about how he's still trying to prove himself to his parents in his 80s; how they tried to turn him away from acting by enrolling him in an apprenticeship in the Clydebank shipyards; and how his stammering, dyslexia and time in Glasgow were to become the making of him. Don't miss this very special interview on The Comedy Café this Friday at one fifteen.
