Hannah's Bookshelf Fictional Comedians Special - 10/08/2019

Hannah's Bookshelf Fictional Comedians Special - 10/08/2019

Playing tracks by

Bee Gees, Steve Miller Band, Stealers Wheel and The Buggles.

This week I decided to have a bit of a laugh (or, in some cases, not so much of a laugh) and look at a selection of literary comedians. Now, I don’t mean comedians who have written books… this week’s show was devoted to fictional comedians and the books in which they appear. I had a look at some clowns, jesters and stand-ups from a selection of very different fictions.

As promised on the show, here’s a list of the titles featured on this week’s episode…

The Narrow Bed by Sophie Hannah (2016)
The Grin of the Dark by Ramsey Campbell (2007)
I Funny by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein (2012)
Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie (1933)
Clown Girl by Monica Drake (2007)
Fool by Christopher Moore (2009)
