Description

GIGObites is a reference to the old computer term GIGO which stands for Garbage In (the news) Garbage Out (my response to this crap) and bites as they are bite sized jokes. This book came about as a lucky accident. I went to a comedy writing seminar by Rob Grant (Co-writer of Red Dwarf and a very nice man) and he suggested that comedy writers should be practicing their writing every day of the week or at least as often as humanly possible. After witnessing several writers writing one liners, I decided that every day for the next year I would write three one line jokes that related to the news. I started posting these to Facebook and whilst they were getting good responses, I was nervous that people were going to get irritated at me filling up their timeline every day. After days of writing I looked down at the word count and had a eureka moment. By the time I finished all 396 days I would have enough material for my own book. A book that hopefully you're going to purchase. Featuring 1,118 pieces of satire over 396 days along with random thoughts of the year and hilarious caricatures, you'll laugh at the news more than you already do.show more
