A Thriller With Jokes.
Comedy? Well, it's a bunch of laughs, isn't it. It can be for the audience. But for the comics, there's nothing quite so serious. And for the cast of Richard Asplin's new novel, there's nothing quite so dangerous, either.
What does an American producer do when he needs - desperately - a new hit comedy series for his TV company and hasn't been able to find anyone who can deliver the goods in the USA? He comes to London to discover the bright and vibrant new talents on the stand-up scene?
What does he do when he realises that his company will fold if he can't find that hit series? What does he do when he realises not only that he has managed to spend the fortune his father left him in a trust fund and that his Chief Financial Officer has all but sold the company to the Mob?
The wacky world of TV comedy is the background for Richard Asplin's blistering new novel - part-comedy, part-thriller, all pure fun.
