Summary

The debut release from Britain’s hottest breakthrough comedy star.

Having stormed shows such as Have I Got News for You (BBC1), Live At The Apollo (BBC1), Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Road Show (BBC1) and now as the new host of Channel 4’s Stand Up for the Week and team captain on 8 out of 10 Cats, the brilliantly funny Jon Richardson is the UK’s rising comedy star to watch out for! Discussing the everyday items that have a profound effect on his outlook, Funny Magnet is Jon’s new hilarious sell-out show that will be touring the UK in 2012 and recorded for his highly anticipated debut release.

Sublimely brilliant, stunning.... He is a comic right on the verge of greatness. If you haven't seen him yet get your finger out and sort it.

Not what I expected

I really enjoyed it , it's not a book like I was expecting but a stand up. If you want to enjoy something for an hour car ride definitely a good choice.

Average standup

I like Jon from his various programmes but this is a bit hit and miss and he says himself not everyone will like everything he says. The high squeaky voices he does just don't add to the storytelling and are just annoying. Well worth a listen in the car for the genuinely funny moments.

Very funny!

A great live show. Laughed out loud the whole way through which was weird for everyone else on the train...

Classic comedy

This is a recording of live stand-up comedy and I was laughing out loud. So easy to listen to in the car as you don't need to concentrate on it too much. It's light enough for some bedtime listening too. Thoroughly enjoyed it, I've listened to it three times already!

Very very funny

Jon Richardson giving his veryfunny view of the world. Brightens up any dull day. Laughing is good for you. We should laugh as much as we can and Jon Richardson is a master at his art.

Fantastic!

I love Jon Richardson from 8 out of 10 Cats, but really didn't know what to expect from his standup. I loved it. All of it.
