Since its publication in the pages of Punch, The Diary Of A Nobody has never been out of print. What started out as a witty weekly series commenting on late Victorian manners has become an undisputed classic of comic literature.

The Diary Of A Nobody is a series of monologues delivered straight to camera, in which the anachronism and immediacy of the modern medium is used to exploit the timeless nature of the material.
