Is It That Time Already?
Rikki Fulton was one of the biggest stars Scotland has ever produced. From classic comedy performances in Francie and Josie, and Scotch and Wry - including the legendary Rev. I. M. Jolly - and appearances in Hollywood movies like Gorky Park, Rikki had an extraordinary life and career.
Now, to celebrate his life and work ten years after his passing, this new edition of Is It That Time Already? tells the full story - from Rikki's childhood in Glasgow in the 1930s to his experiences in the Royal Navy during the Second World War and his rise to stardom. Rikki includes the remarkable story of how he survived his ship being torpedoed during the war and how he fulfilled his showbiz dreams when the war ended, as he became one the funniest performers and the biggest star of his generation with a career dedicated to making people laugh.
Packed full of anecdotes, and with a new afterword by Rikki's friend and colleague Tony Roper, Is It That Time Already? is a brilliant autobiography by a much-loved and missed entertainer.

Born in the East End of Glasgow to a non-theatrical family, the young Rikki Fulton was a natural performer, who knew from an early age that he wanted to be on the stage. After eventful wartime service in the Royal Navy, where his ship was torpedoed in the Mediterranean, it didn't take Rikki Fulton long to move from amateur dramatics and a respectable job in a shipping agency to the precarious world of the full-time performer. Rikki Fulton quickly established himself as a hugely popular entertainer whose characters have become legends: from Josie (of Francie and Josie fame) to the Reverend I.M. Jolly (star of innumerable Hogmanay celebrations) and Supercop in Scotch & Wry.
