Introducing a brilliant new talent to Christmas humour books - Chris Addison's "Cautionary Tales for Grown-ups" will appeal to fans of Andy Riley and Ricky Gervais.
What the papers say:
"* 'His scathing wit deserves comic-laureate status.' - The Sunday Times * 'There aren't enough stars for Addison's show: he is erudite but not inaccessible or superior; confident withouth being arrogant, and the show is so well written and sharp that you will bore your friends for days afterwards quoting memorable lines from it.' - Stephanie Merritt, Observer * 'The country's most erudite young stand-up.' - Guardian * 'A clever sod.' - Metro"
