The best of his first three books, plus over 100 bonus gags!
Graham Hey has been a comedy writer and performer for almost twenty years, writing for a variety of TV stars in the UK, and for many stand-up comedians, magicians and mentalists. Between 1994 and 1999 he had his own comedy section in a UK national newspaper, writing four pages of topical gags each week for Express Newspapers. In total, over 8000 orignal gags were published, and used widely in the UK by comedians and performers. He has been contracted to the BBC and Talkback TV as a comedy writer. His most recent work has been writing comedy magic routines for a children's TV show on ITV in England.
From the introduction:
Hello, and welcome to this compilation of comedy material from my first three books. I have also included a selection of new stuff as an added bonus. There's a wide variety of visual gags and one liners, plus plenty of lines which are specifically for magicians and mentalists. Try them out, and use them! I've tried a lot of this material out in comedy clubs, and I still use quite a bit of it on a regular basis. Select what suits you best… some of the material is pure comedy, some of it is more light-hearted lines… In the past whenever I have read a joke book, I would laugh at maybe one-in-fifty of the jokes – because humour is all down to personal taste. Hopefully, the ratio in this book will be a lot higher!
