Fun At One - The Story Of Comedy At Radio 1 By Tim Worthington
eBook (PDF): $4.82
Fun At One is the first complete history of comedy on BBC Radio 1. Launched in 1967, the BBC’s pop music service provided an outlet for comics who struggled to get exposure elsewhere, from... More > the humorous disc jockeys of the late sixties and early seventies, through to edgy standup comedians in the late eighties, and more than one whose act defies description even today. Fun At One traces the story of comedy on Radio 1 from its launch to more recent experiments with podcasting and streaming video. Along the way it covers Kenny Everett, Rawlinson End, Adrian Juste, Lenny Henry, Victor Lewis-Smith, The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Lee & Herring’s Fist Of Fun, The Chris Morris Music Show, Mark & Lard, Blue Jam and much more besides, not to mention – of course – Smashie & Nicey. Fun At One is an essential addition to any library, but particularly one that’s had a large shotgun hole blasted in it by Sir Henry Rawlinson.< Less

The Larks Ascending - A Guide To Comedy On BBC Radio 3 By Tim Worthington
Paperback: $8.42
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Larks Ascending A complete guide to comedy, humour and downright oddness on BBC Radio 3, from Kenneth Williams’ archival documentaries about strolling players who never existed, through... More > Rowan Atkinson’s academic profiles of public figures who never existed, right up to Armando Iannucci’s interval talks about composers who did exist, but they’re fitting around him and his using his ears whether they like it or not. There’s Chris Morris interviewing Peter Cook (and getting in trouble), BBC Radiophonic Workshop hi-jinks, the first ever proper staging of Joe Orton’s unused film script for The Beatles, some sitcoms that definitely wouldn’t appeal to viewers waiting for Coronation Street, satire, silliness, and a couple of plays about cricket. And if that’s just not highbrow enough for you, then you could always enrol at The Half-Open University… Tim Worthington is the author of Fun At One – The Story Of Comedy At BBC Radio 1, and holder of a First Class Third Degree course in Comedic Appreciation.< Less
