If you are a fan of classic dry English humour then you will probably like this offering from new Author Paul Griffin. It features a collection of short stories based on real life, real people events. Some of them hilarious, some bemusing and a few simply baffling. The book starts with a collection of miscellaneous tales. Then moves on to stories that evolved around Paul's time as a partner in a recording studio in South London and features some of the bizarre characters he encountered. The final part of the book introduces a persona called Colonel Rage. Outrageous 'Colonel Rage' is a retired British Army Colonel. He lives in the suburbs with Mrs Rage. He has strong views on a variety of subjects from Obesity and Evolution to Queues. The Colonel is very anti modern life and you may find him offensive or intriguing but hopefully very amusing.
All in all 'Funny' is meant to be what it says on the tin 'Funny'. A perfect book to lift your spirits, or keep you company on a journey. Paul has his own unique writing style but his humour is very much influenced by British writers/ comedians Spike Milligan, Ricky Gervais , Tony Hancock & Peter Cook. Forget our mad world for a while and “Enter the even Crazier World of Funny”

About the Author
People have always told me I should be a Comic Writer. So I thought I would give it a go. It's all very easy to make the suggestion, but a different thing actually doing it. You need something to be funny about. Fortunately being of a certain age I have a lot of experiences and people I have known to draw on for material. Some of it is hilarious, and some of it interesting and some just baffling. My normal work involves music production/composition and more lately making music videos, so writing is something of a new venture for me. Hopefully successful but certainly a lot of fun.....................
