MEDIA REVIEWS
'Anybody who dips into Funny Ha, Ha [...] will emerge many hours later filled not only with pleasure and delight, but also with a sense of gratitude to Merton for choosing so well' * The Times *
'Comprehensively joyful ... Some stories are, as promised, funny ha ha. Others are funny peculiar. Many are just plain witty. How are they all arranged? Alphabetically, by author, which is an entirely illogical logic and, as it turns out, perfect for this eclectic treasure chest' * Sunday Times *
'As you might expect from as singular a comic talent as Paul Merton, this compilation of his favourite funny stories offers material both hilarious and unusual' * Guardian *
'A mixture of old favourites [...] and new discoveries ... You're bound to find stories that put a smile on your face' * Daily Mirror *
'Poignant as well as funny ... There are plenty of belly laughs ... Whatever your taste in humour, the book is so vast you are bound to find stories to put a smile on your face' * Sunday Express *
'Extremely funny ... [An] eclectic, wide-ranging anthology' * Sunday Times *
'Easy to dip in and out of' * Scotsman *
'Such gems that they are well worth another outing ... The book does indeed have its charms' -- Herald
