Book Description

3 Sep 2009

Dive into the bizarre yet strangely familiar world of Mitchell and Webb – the wittiest men on television, or anywhere else.

From the two finest comedians of their generation comes the ultimate Christmas comedy book – lavishly illustrated in colour, containing all sorts of outrageous stuff that will have you laughing into the spring and beyond.

David Mitchell and Robert Webb have been hard at work cramming all the comic genius that marked their award-winning TV and radio shows into one very beautiful and very funny hardback book.

Ted the snooker commentator's Hello Magazine photo shoot will be unveiled for the very first time, and expect guest appearances from Dr Jonathan Miller and CSI's David Caruso.

David and Rob have also unearthed Hitler's lost text messages and some notes Peter Mandelson left on his fridge. They will offer tips on surviving the credit crunch for all those that need them.

Expect a board game put together by Sir Digby Chicken-Caesar, a guide to the cheeses of Saudi Arabia, and news of the ever-expanding range of Mitchell and Webb products.

This Mitchell and Webb book will be supported by a frankly enormous marketing budget and stunning publicity everywhere. This will be the best comedy book for a long time, not least because David and Robert have put every page together themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny on every page 18 Feb 2010
By Mr. Stuart Bruce TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Mitchell and Webb always make the effort to write new material for whichever medium they're writing for- a lot of their radio show stuff would only work on radio, many of their TV sketches rely on video gags, and there's stuff in this book that will only ever work in print. Where some comedians might use a book as a chance to re-hash their TV scripts, this is all brand-new stuff- and great stuff too. It doesn't read like a cheap Christmas cash-in book hastily written by ghost writers. Seriously it doesn't. Now that you've said that you're going to think I'm being sarcastic when I'm not. That's the problem with print.

Highlights include, but are certainly not limited to, the recurring series "Mundane Quotes Of The Great" and "Great Flat-Share Note Discourses", adverts for the Mitchell and Webb Allen Key and Mitchell And Webb Polythene, and the incredibly astute little section 'designed to cater for fans of The Mighty Boosh who have been bought this book by mistake'.

Great care and at least one joke has gone into every page and if you're a fan of any other Mitchell and Webb material, and if you enjoy reading things, this book is the perfect combination of the two for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever AND laugh-out-loud funny 29 Sep 2009
Books tied in with television comedy shows can be a bit hit-and-miss. You have to write many more words to fill a book than for a TV script. No problem with this one, though: it succeeds in being both hilarious and rather cleverer than some of the dumbed-down stuff we've had of late (Bo'Selecta, Little Britain...was there ever a Two Pints book? I hope not.)

This book takes no prisoners: Alan Bennett turns into Richard Littlejohn; The Mighty Boosh gets a skewering; there are some superb 'rejected posters' for well-known films. Even the bits from their TV programmes which, due to repetition, have begun to grate a bit (Sir Digby, the snooker commentators) manage to be amusing here.

A fine Christmas pressie for anyone who knows you don't have to be thick to be funny.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 12 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is just terrible. The art direction and graphic design are a huge part of the problem but there aren't enough ideas either. It's really a mess.

I was dissapointed with this book. I really like Mitchell and Webb, both on the radio and TV.
Sadly, this book just isn't that funny.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK 21 Sep 2013
I found it to be a bit of a disappointment, to be honest. It was OK, and there were certainly a number of funny bits, but I guess I prefer their more verbal humour, or the more fleshed-out ideas in their sketches. I found myself flipping through looking for where the real bulk of it started, but there kind of wasn't any. It was mostly just one or two page doodles or ideas for a joke or visual gags.

I still basically liked it, and like I said there were some good bits, I just didn't enjoy it on the same level as I enjoy most of their stuff.
