Two comedy fans have made a book featuring illustrations of stand-up comedians to colour in.

Jenny Grene and Lise Richardson, who previously worked together to produce a colouring in book for Elis James and John Robins, have just completed work on Lisey and Jenby's Bumper Book of Comedy Colouring, Vol. 1.

The book features thirty comedians - a mixture of established and emerging acts - each with their own 'fun activity based around their TV appearances or show'.

The full list of acts featured in the book is: French & Saunders, Miranda Hart, Jo Brand, Sarah Millican, Sara Pascoe, Isy Suttie, Birthday Girls, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Eleanor Tiernan, Fern Brady, Lou Sanders, Danielle Ward, Josie Long, Roisin Conaty, Pippa Evans, Angela Barnes, Suzi Ruffell, Bridget Christie, Rachel Parris, Lolly Adefope, Aisling Bea, Katherine Ryan, Susan Calman, Sandi Toksvig, Bec Hill, Caroline Mabey, Nina Conti, Cariad Lloyd, Mel & Sue and Victoria Coren Mitchell.

Speaking to BCG about their new creation, Jenny and Lise explain: "We love working together, and it's so great producing things for people who love all the same things we do.

"We were inspired by some of our favourite comedians (who just happen to be female) to make this odd little book as a follow-on from our The Elis James and John Robins Colouring Experience. We're so pleased with the reception this book has got already, and we hope people enjoy colouring it and doing the slightly mad activities! "

Lise and Jenny were basking in the glory of their first published colouring book* when inspiration (or desperation to remain cool and relevant) struck. A new colouring book full of all** their favourite comedians!

This is that book.

Try and colour within the lines. Or don't you're your own person and you can do what you want, that's cool too.

* The Elis James and John Robins Colouring Experience. Google it.
** Most. Well, some. A handful, perhaps.
