What a disappointment. With hindsight, I should have realised that an A to Z anthology was bound to be padded out with material just there because the alphabet demanded it. I would be amazed to find anyone who had actually ploughed through the entire 248 pages of this, hunting out the very occasional laugh.

This is an alphabetical list of essays on Glasgow comedians and comedy subjects. The choice of subjects is a bit random; some such as Jimmy Logan are afforded only half a page, and many others such as Doris Droy or Sammy Murray are missed out completely. Unfortunately some of the dates given, and probably some of the comments, are inaccurate which reduces the value of the book.

The book appears to have been hurriedly written and in itself is not funny.

Was given this as a gift. I was appalled at the lack of humour and awful writing. I can only presume that Mr Browns Journalist Of The Year award was awarded in a year when no-one else was available. I'm surprised he's written a book about Glasgow as he clearly despises being a Glaswegian.Not good.

Bought this book as a gift and read it myself. Send this book to family living abroad and transport them back home with every turn of the page. Great.
