The Sunnewspaper asked if Chris Morris's July 2001 Brass Eye Special on paedophilia was 'the sickest TV ever?' It was certainly the most controversial, though Morris's uncompromising style of comedy meant he was rarely far from trouble.

Morris first came to national prominence at the heart of a group of virtually unknown comedians which included Armando Iannucci, Patrick Marber, Stewart Lee and Richard Herring, and Steve Coogan. Disgusting Blissfollows them from their 1991 news satire On the Hour, later reinvented as the equally successful The Day Today, and examines the mysterious, anarchic figure of Morris, whose total avoidance of celebrity left a gap filled by a kind of mythology, while the fury of his work polarised opinion and prompted government ministers to threaten to ban him.

Drawing on exclusive new interviews and original research, Disgusting Blisspaints a compelling portrait of Chris Morris from childhood to the height of the storm he created in taking on the media industry in which he worked.
