Is Man the only animal that laughs? Why are clowns so scary? Do jokes make children more intelligent? Are men funnier than women? Can God take a joke? What's brown and sticky? What do you get if you cross a joke book with a vivid, funny and fascinating look at what makes us laugh? Join top comedian Jimmy Carr and his best friend and fellow joke-lover, Lucy Greeves on a whistle-stop tour of the strange and wonderful world of jokes. From the mysterious pygmy jesters of Ancient Egypt to today's stars of stand-up comedy, via Shakespeare, Freud and Lenny Bruce, this journey is by turns thought-provoking and hilarious. And with a connoisseur's selection of over 400 of the best jokes ever told, "The Naked Jape" will be sure to find your funny bone.Biografía del autor:
Jimmy Carr and Lucy Greeves first met at university in 1992, where they bonded over a shared taste for near-the-knuckle stand-up comedy and terrible puns. In 1999, Jimmy binned a perfectly good job in marketing to see if thinking about jokes all day might be more fun. (It was.) Six years later, he persuaded his friend Lucy -- by then making her living as a copywriter -- to do the same. The Naked Jape is their first book together.
