About this product
- Description'Doctor, doctor, what do you call a book about comedy that tries to be funny, argumentative, wide-ranging, silly, weirdly personal and fairly well-researched?' 'Doomed to failure.' Bullets are violent. Jokes are violent. Can either be used for good? What is 'good'? A Good Bullet will make next to effort to answer the last question because it's too hard. But it will have a crack at asking why and how jokes commit violence. Why and how they amuse us with things that otherwise cause us anxiety and pain. Why and how sex, war, history, death, insecurity, hatred and loss - all the good stuff - make people laugh.
- Author BiographyFreddy Syborn co-writes the record-breaking BBC 3 sitcom, Bad Education. He's co-written a Sky Little Cracker, contributed sketches to Psychobitches, and written jokes for TV shows including Live at the Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats, Have I Got News For You and Big Brother's Big Mouth. The Independent called him one of the stars of this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival , the Scotsman said he was a truly gifted young theatre maker , and Exeunt magazine credited him with a reaching, intelligent, starfishy kind of mind.
