This book is basically just a collection of scripts from the A Bit of Fry and Laurie TV show, but I’ve seen every episode of it a whole bunch of times and so because of that, it felt weirdly like I was re-reading something.

The good news is that all in all, I thought it was a lot of fun, and it reminded me why I was such a fan of the show in the first place. It also got me wanting to re-watch it, especially because of certain sections like the Tony and Control sketches. It even clarified a few bits here and there where I guess I misheard what had been said in the show and so the jokes were lost on me.

Still, I was somehow expecting more from this, perhaps in the form of a few little bonuses from Fry and Laurie. There was a little introduction that added a certain amount of context, but it wasn’t really enough to make this feel original in its own right. Instead, the book was kind of derivative of the show, but what the hey? If you’re a fan of Fry and Laurie, you’ll still enjoy it.

I quite like John Lennon’s books, but they do get a little repetitive after a while. That’s because they’re basically just chock full of wordplay, nonsense poetry and odd little stories and sketches. It’s great to see inside his head of course, but I’m not sure they’re worth reading unless you’re a fan of his. Still, it’s quirky, which I like.
