Product description

Review

"In the '70s, John Dowie invented Alternative Comedy. At the end of the '80s, he abandoned it. In the '90s, he sold all his possessions and set off to cycle around Europe indefinitely, moaning. Dowie's love of landscapes and life is matched only by his hilarious hatred of himself and others" (Stewart Lee)

"I genuinely cannot recommend this cornucopia of middle-England majesty too highly" (Alan Moore)

"The best book I’ve read this year. A delightful trip inside the mind of a funny, clever and alarmingly wise man" (Julian Clary)

"Dowie has great stories to tell and a sure-footed knack for telling them ... This is very funny indeed. Dowie may have left stand-up behind but his bone-dry sense of humour certainly hasn’t abandoned him ... It’s written with skill, flair, intelligence and plenty of humour. For someone who seems happy to present himself as anti-social, Dowie is actually very fine company to spend 240 pages with" (We Are Cult)

About the Author

Comedian, poet, playwright, musician, actor, director, author. These are just a few of the words that John Dowie is able to spell. He began performing comedy in 1971, later going on to work as a director and to write for radio and TV as well as the theatre, most notably Jesus My Boy. In 2005 he decided to retire from theatrical work of any kind and went off with a bike and a tent. And now he’s back.
