Product Description

Review

"It's the kind of show that sticks a boot up the posterior of those who claim the BBC is only interested in dumbing down pap these days" (Dominik Diamond Daily Star)

"It was fun, instructive and will appeal to the scholarly in all of us. I see no earthly reason why it should not, as it used to say on theatre posters, run and run" (Peter Paterson Daily Mail)

"Fascinating" (The Times)

"Balderdash and Piffle has proved that we still value our vocabulary" (Sally Raikes The Scotsman)

About the Author

Alex Games wrote the original Balderdash & Piffle which became an instant bestseller on publication in January 2006. He has written for most of the slightly posher newspapers, and in a brief stint as a gadget columnist he was responsible for reviewing some of the most inexpensive items ever to appear in the Financial Times. As well as writing comedy for BBC Radio 1 and 4, Alex has written biographies of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, and Alan Bennett.

Victoria Coren is a well-known freelance journalist. She writes weekly columns in the Guardian and the Observer, and she has written two books, Love 16 and Once More With Feeling. She presents Balderdash & Piffle and several televised poker series. Victoria is a keen amateur word-hunter and an avid completer of crosswords, albeit not always with the right answers.
