I had to think about this topic from Long and Short Reviews, because I've been reading a lot of nonfiction lately, and autobiographies don't always lend themselves to humour. I have been reading Michael McIntyre's two autobiographies which are quite funny, since he apparently uses episodes from his life in his comedy, but I wasn't convinced that counted.
Then I remembered these two.
This Is Going To Hurt and Twas The Nightshift Before Christmas by Adam Kay. Two compilations of stories about his time as a hospital doctor, these are occasionally wince-inducing but mostly hysterically funny. Quite educational, too - I had no idea, for instance, that steroid cream can make the skin thinner, which is not ideal if you're using it as a genital enhancer.
If you haven't read them I definitely recommend getting them this Christmas. You'll collapse laughing.
So what's the funniest book you've ever read?
Oh, I'm not familiar with those. This is going to be fun!ReplyDelete
They're absolutely hysterical.Delete
