BeschreibungIn The Best Australian Humorous Writing, Andrew O'Keefe and Steve Vizard corral our funniest minds and canniest observers into one entertaining anthology. The writers bring a unique antipodean mirth to everything that has touched our lives in recent times-from Sir Ian McKellen disrobing on stage to busting up the Logies, from the privatisation of Telstra to the curves of Nigella Lawson, from the perils of entertaining children to the perennial outrage that modern telecommunications offers.
