Reviews

Joyfully entertaining... full of warmth, wisdom and affectionate delight in the wonder and absurdity of being human. * The Observer *
Accessible [and] intriguing... a smart, laugh-out-loud book. * Evening Standard *
Funny, honest and heart-warming. * Matt Haig - author of Reasons to Stay Alive *
Clever, witty and wise. It's very revealing about the psychology of comedians - and the rest of us. * Claudia Hammond - presenter of BBC Radio 4's All in the Mind *
Clever, funny, kind and interesting - just like Robin. * Sara Pascoe, comedian and author of Animal *
Deceptively deep. Invaluable and inspiring. * Stewart Lee, comedian and author of How I Escaped My Certain Fate *
Charming, funny, throbbingly intelligent... A memorable, joyful, gorgeous read -- Deborah Frances-White * Observer *
Moving, funny and interesting! Robin leads us on a fascinating journey through our often quirky minds. * Jo Brand, comedian *
Profound, compassionate, eye-wateringly funny and immensely human. Robin investigates the big questions of the human condition with the razor-sharp insights and sensibilities of one of our very best stand-up comedians. * Alan Moore, writer of V for Vendetta *
One of the UK's most accomplished, versatile comedians. * Guardian *
Moving and insightful... This wide-ranging and well-researched book hides its deceptive depth in an easy to read, witty and conversational style. * Irish Times *
Fascinating... One of the best books ever written about what it means to be a comedian... it's certainly a must-read for anyone interested in the workings of comedy and comedians, but probably for anyone interested in the workings of human beings in general. * Chortle *
Insightful, informed, touching and funny in equal measure. * Richard Wiseman, Professor of Psychology *
Parts of the book are hilarious, parts of it heartbreaking... Easy to devour, and a real pleasure to read. * Chemistry World *
For a comedy book, Robin Ince's I'm a Joke and So Are You doesn't ask the usual question - 'What is wrong with comedians?' - but instead shows the quirks and weird thoughts we all fear are unique to ourselves are not as strange as we think. It's a book about the human mind and one that leaves you feeling a lot less alone in yours. * The Skinny, Book of the Year 2018 *
In addition to being royally entertained I was also educated... * The Psychologist *
