Product description


Susan Murray's insightful overview of the alternative comedy scene is both informative and illuminating, shining a bright light on one of the UK s most important cultural movements in the late 20th Century. --Bruce Dessau, British arts critic

Oughton delivers a thorough contemporary investigation into the cult movie-going scene… with the passion and knowledge of a genuine insider… --Marcus Campbell Sinclair, theatre and film producer

Informative and entertaining, this provides a whipsmart and affectionate analysis of a subculture that stands at a critical point. --Jonathan Hatfull, SciFi Now Magazine
