Page 45 Review by Stephen

The success of so much comedy lies in the recognition factor, and I recognised the truth of this alternative commiseration card by Lizz Lunney which, given such displays of online agony, would probably outsell those targeted towards weddings, funerals and even Mother's Day:

"Sorry to hear your favourite celebrity died. Good news is - it makes zero real difference to your life whatsoever."

Lizz will admit that she is quick to judge - especially people by their shoes. On another page she does so, at length, before concluding incontrovertibly…

"If you don't want to be judged by your shoes wear a cape."

Lizz, with Joe List, is in charge of this cavalcade of comedy which we imported direct from the U.S. of A.. Stock is therefore limited and once gone, it is gone.

Some of my favourites were: Fossil Waffle by Kristyna Baczynski because, when you think about it, fossils are the most put-upon victims of musical statues once the fat lady's stopped singing forever; the unsolicited, self-obsessed suggestions from friends and strangers about what Gareth Brookes should write comics about; Stephen Collins' for the craftsmanship; and Joe Decie for turning the table on door-to-door salesmen by trying to sell them something instead. Trust me, this works: I've had cold-callers hang up on me!
