Are you having a laugh? You soon will be with audiobooks from the biggest names in comedy, including Alan Partridge, Michael McIntyre and Kevin Hart.
Comedy comes in different forms – there’s the energetic clowning of Lee Evans, or the cringe-inducing embarrassment of Alan Partridge, or the sophisticated wit of classic sitcom Yes Minister. Whatever our individual tastes, the best comedy all has a physical effect on us: there’s no faking the laughter.
The best comedians do more than make us laugh, their work is funny and brilliant and true. Comedy can expose the ridiculousness of everyday life. It can grapple with serious issues. It can be as simple as someone slipping on a banana skin. Or, as in Kevin Hart’s hilarious, heartfelt autobiography, it might just change your life.
We’ve selected 10 of the best sellers in comedy to make you laugh out loud and alter your perspective.
