I've written a book about Donald, Melania and the skeletons in the closet. The Liar, the Bitch and the Wardrobe.
Used porn. Second hand.
I've just finished reading a Russell Braddon book. Now I'm planning to read A Kentish Lad by Frank Muir.

Looks like this one is far exceeding the other one.
Finally finished David Mitchell's "Back Story" and can thoroughly recommend it. He uses a walk-through London, using certain areas/buildings as a sort of reminder of his life/anecdotes and struggle to get into comedy, the final chapter being when he marries Victoria Coren. He walks a lot apparently as it eases the back problem he has suffered with for years, and I presume the book title references his sitcom "Back", which I have also enjoyed.
Funny in part (one anecdote I've mentioned before made me laugh out loud, about a bow-tie), though he can ramble in places, but he does give an excellent insight into the whole shebang of comedy and writing for same.
