While there are some gems in here, the book overall is not that funny and relies too much on crass humour for my liking. While I don't mind sexual humour if there's some wit about it, references to sex (and other crass humour) are overdone in this book and often just rely on the crass element rather than being clever. Also, part of the humour in 'Scenes we'd like to see' has been about the delivery of the lines which doesn't always translate well to written format.

Really funny book, nice layout, however i do think that anyone could have written these scenes. They aren't written by any of the comedians on the tv show, so it does seem a bit pointless to make a whole book of 'scenes we'd like to see' they could expand the book to other parts of mock the week show. Other than that its a funny book.

I picked this up for a pound in a Newcastle charity shop and I'm glad I didn't pay more, because most of these one-liners are really very ordinary. Fine as a book to browse through while eating dinner in a youth hostel, but not something I'd bother reading again, so I shall be completing the circle and re-donating it to a new charity shop :D

Received as a present a couple years ago...hilarious and now I suddenly have a craving to watch WLIIA.

Based on a BBC weekly show. Things they'd like to see written on several places and occasions. Some funny, some far fetched, too many pages.

This book was ok, some of it was quite funny, other bits....not so much. I'm sure I saw some one-liners repeated a couple of times throughout the book. Ok for an amusing light read.
