9780091889241: Sit-down Comedy: Stand-ups Swap the Stage for the Page

To satisfy the needs of the hundreds of thousands of people who pay good money to see stand-up every year, Malcolm Hardee ('the comedian's comedian' WHSmith Online; 'a national monument' The Guardian) presents a comedy club on the page with a bill featuring the glitterati of British stand-up comedy. We let the famous names and new talents alike try out their written humour and their only brief is to make us laugh. We plan to make the book an annual event, and are sure it will soon become the world's largest virtual comedy club. Contributors include: Keith Allen, Jo Brand, Simon Day, Jenny -clair, Boothby Graffoe, Ricky Grover, Jeremy Hardy, Hattie Hayridge, John Hegley, Jeff Innocent, Mark Lamarr, Chris Lynam, Simon Munnery, Rob Newman, Mark Steel, Arthur Smith, Jim Tavare, Mark Thomas

Review:

As alternative as comedy gets..... RELEASE OF THE WEEK; FOUR STARS -- The Scotsman

It's juvenile. It's sophisticated..... it's entertaining.....FOUR STARS -- Daily Mirror

This anthology is the next best thing to a comedy cabaret.....PAPERBACK OF THE WEEK -- Observer

featuring the best names in the business.....it makes an intriguing read for any fans of stand-up.....a breezily entertaining read -- chortle.co.uk

From the Publisher:

We gave the famous names and new talents alike carte blanche to try out their humour on the page in any weird and wonderful way they chose - fiction, fantasy, skewed slices of real life and beyond.
