Clever AND laugh-out-loud funny,
This review is from: This Mitchell and Webb Book (Hardcover)
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.
