Over the course of the last 10 years, Frank Skinner has toured sell-out stand-up shows, hosted countless TV shows and an award-winning radio programme, written two well-received volumes of memoir, as well as recording a couple of pop songs and learning to play the ukulele. He has been a busy man. Yet, for the last two years, he has also managed to squeeze in a weekly column for The Times. Without fail, he sat down every week and wracked his brain to think of something to write 900 words about. Dispatches from the Sofa is the brilliant result.

Alighting on such random topics as the potential demise of Margaret Thatcher, the love-hate relationship with your football club, Mike Read's musical of Oscar Wilde, fat pop stars, Serbian breakfast banter, the pleasures of air-guitar, the banking crisis and the evil phenomenon of Jedward, this is a thought-provoking, wide-reaching, hilarious and self-deprecating collection - which also includes the first two chapters from his unpublished novel - from one of our funniest, quickest and most beloved comedians.

    " Ok. Funny in places but not enough considering it's by Frank Skinner. Some nice opinion pieces and surprisingly well written and thought out. "

    " Consistently funny and often insightful. The only problem is that a lot of the essays were topical and were already somewhat out of date by the time it was published. "
