The funniest of them all
on 13 July 2008
This can be taken in two ways: Alan was by far the funniest team member on Radio 4's 'The News Quiz' and I found this book, published at the time of Alan's death last October (2007) the funniest of his many books.
Consisting of 69 short pieces on a huge range of subjects, Alan's flights of fancy had me choking over my morning cornflakes and spluttering over my morning coffee. Every piece is laugh-aloud funny.
He was the best comic writer ever and he is very much missed.
