The Godfather of British stand-up comedy returns to the live stage with his trials of modern life. Today, John muses over the proverb "children should be seen and not heard" and looks back into his own childhood, and the phrase's old high English origins.

The learning of children fascinates John, left to interpret the world himself by his Irish family. Gorilla warfare? How does that work? Perhaps the barbary apes of Gibraltar have more of a chance.

A Dabster production for BBC Radio 4.
