About the Author

After a spell as a civil servant Paul Merton began his stand-up career in 1982 at London's Comedy Store and still regularly performs both there and at the Edinburgh Festival. For many years he has been team captain on BBC1's Have I Got News For You, for which he won a BAFTA in 2003, and he has hosted Room 101 on BBC2. Some of Paul's other television credits include Paul Merton - The Series I & II, Paul Merton in China and Paul Merton in India and he has published two previous books- Paul Merton's History of the Twentieth Century and a spoof autobiography, Paul Merton - My Struggle. Paul is also a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4's Just A Minute. He has been a lifelong fan of silent comedy, and his much-acclaimed series Silent Clowns was first broadcast in 2006 on BBC4.
