The wry smile of the man in this portrait, sums up a comedian for whom making an audience laugh was 'an indescribable joy', something that 'everyone craves to be able to do'. The son of a shopkeeper, Rikki Fulton was born in Glasgow. His successful career spanned theatre, pantomime, radio, television and film. Many will remember his annual TV appearance in Scotch and Wry on Hogmanay as the Revd I.M. Jolly. Equally memorable was his role as Josie, playing opposite Jack Milroy's Francie - a double act that had audiences in stitches long after the first show in 1959.
