About the Author:

Review:

"Packed with brilliant observations and sharp one-liners, but it is also a surprising look at the nuts and bolts of comedy" * The Times * "Eloquence and wit ...shine from this gently peculiar story ... an absolute gem" * Metro * "Watson is a gifted comic writer unafraid to juggle material many comic writers wouldn't touch... an intelligent, humane and desperately funny tale" * Independent on Sunday *
