The Wit And Wisdom Of Stephen Fry

The Wit And Wisdom Of Stephen Fry

It is true that Stephen Fry is a celebrated, award-winning comedian and actor. He is also a bestselling author, a television presenter and director. More than anything though he is a terrific wit, and a philosopher for the 21st century whose utterances are as memorable as those of Oscar Wilde, the man he once portrayed on the big screen. Here, for the first time, is a treasury of the finest sayings of Britain's finest wit.

Fry first captured the public imagination when he appeared alongside Hugh Laurie in A Bit of Fry and Laurie and Jeeves and Wooster in the 1980s. He then starred in further television triumphs including the BBC sitcom Blackadder, before moving to cinema where he took the lead role in Wilde. He is now the host of the much-loved comedy panel show QI. He has also found the time to write several books, appear on the American crime drama series Bones, star on the stage, amass a collection of teddy bears, be the voice of the Harry Potter audio books and spend three months in prison.
