'A Talent To Amuse' is the title of Sheridan Morley's pioneering 1969 biography of Sir Noel Coward but it's also a description of what Sheridan Morley himself (1941-2007) could do. As author, broadcaster, critic, director, and raconteur, Sheridan could captivate audiences with his theatre stories and his anecdotes about his eccentric family which included his father, actor Robert Morley and his grandmother, Dame Gladys Cooper. He wrote more than 30 books out of his intimate knowledge and love of all aspects of theatre.

Cambridge educated scholar Michael Law (also singer, pianist and founder of The Piccadilly Dance Orchestra) was Sheridan's cabaret partner. Together, they toured and broadcast their cabarets all over the world, even recording a CD. Michael performed in Sheridan's play " Noel and Gertie" and was an intimate friend. They were working together while Sheridan was writing his last biographies and during his last illness.

In his affectionate and personal tribute to Sheridan, Michael recalls Sheridan's hilarious anecdotes. He plays and sings songs from their cabaret shows and explores the biographies which Sheridan was writing during their tours.
