Comedy series Frankly Howerd detailed episodes in the life of Frankie Howerd ‘ala’ Tony Hancock. The series stemmed from a previous collaboration between Howerd, Ship and Sharp called Frankie Howerd In Shakespeare Without Tears.

The series ended up being something of a flop, made at a time when Frankie Howerd was going through a tough patch and establishing a reputation for not being the easiest man to work with.
