Synopsis

As 'the voice of darts', the inimitable Sid Waddell helped transform it from an unfashionable pub game to a massively successful international sport. His uninhibited enthusiasm, classical allusions and memorable one-liners endeared him to millions. His son Dan Waddell grew up in this smoky, boozy world and witnessed Sid's turbulent journey from failed novelist and struggling TV producer to much-loved television personality. We Had Some Laughs is Dan's warm, moving and funny account of Sid's colourful life and career and a son's memories of an unconventional dad. It is also a celebration of a way of life and a story of loss - of people, places and times now gone or changed for ever. But, most of all, it's a story about fathers and sons, and the unshakeable bond between them.



Dan Waddell is a journalist, novelist and author. He covered two seasons of county cricket for the Daily Telegraph and his books include Who Do You Think You Are? and Field of Shadows: The Remarkable True Story of the English Cricket Tour of Nazi Germany, 1937. He captains Acton 2nd XI in the Middlesex County League where he tries and fails to pass on sage advice to young players.
