Funny, shrewd and thoroughly entertaining. Anyone thinking of working in comedy production (and a fair few who already do) should be made to read this book. Jon Plowman is simply the best! -- Steve Pemberton
I learned so much from this book. For a start, I had no idea Jon produced comedy... For those who suffer from chronic constipation and like to read on the loo, there's at least three good shits-worth here... A very funny, honest, naughty memoir from the godfather producer of British TV comedy. -- Matt Lucas
As the godfather to a whole era of television comedy, Jon Plowman's hugely entertaining memoir, packed with anecdotes, gossip and wisdom about getting the show on the road, or sometimes into the cul de sac, is a delicious treat for upcoming programme makers and nosy parkers alike... If you've ever wondered what an Executive Producer does, read this book and still wonder. Because from Jon Plowman's witty and insightful account of the ins and outs and occasional car crashes of actually getting comedy shows onto television, you might conclude they just make up the rules as they go along. And thank goodness. -- Hugh Bonneville
This is the rarest of rare things - a fascinating life, wonderfully told. It manages to be hilarious, informative, scurrilous and utterly page-turning all at once. Jon Plowman has made full use of the famous maxim "You can't libel the dead" (though worryingly seems to have extended this to the living too) to bring us a book of world-class anecdotes. If you've ever laughed at a British comedy I guarantee you will adore How to Produce Comedy Bronze. -- Adam Kay
