Comedy Classics

34 Hilarious Stories
An anthology of stories edited by

This selection of comedy pieces gives a light hearted look at life from some of the funniest men and women. Some stories have all the action of non-stop classic slapstick like Damon Runyon's "Butch Minds the Baby", not to mention James Herriot's bizarre controversy during the annual Darrowby Show. Classic cases of mis- understanding and mistaken identity from novelists Tom Sharpe and Evelyn Waugh are also included and no comedy collection would be complete without its complement of clownish characters. Staring in this humorous parade are Spike Milligan's loony Irish namesake Richard Gordon's hapless medical students and the inimitable Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves. From Hollywood cracksters to renowned satirists, from rumbustious farce to subtle irony this anthology has something for everyone, making it a source of delight and diversion for all tastes, moods and ages.
