  • "A Yank who loves Mark Steel"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Mark Steel performs often on BBC Radio. The first time I heard him was his bio of Beethoven (my favorite composer) and I howled with laughter throughout. Been a big Mark Steel fan ever since. This program is fun because he visits small and (to an American) obscure towns throughout Great Britain, and does a performance there talking about what makes each town unique and interesting. Who knew that there was actually a Boston in England? Not me!

    In his first show, Mark finds himself in a livestock auction hall in Skipton, Yorkshire, celebrating canals, castles and cows, while in Boston, Lincolnshire, Mark talks about sprouts, chavs, Puritans and the Boston Stump. Lewes, East Sussex, provides Mark with material about fires, pub fights and stroppiness, and in Walsall, Mark celebrates the accent, the concrete hippo, and how the town has absolutely nothing to do with Birmingham.

    Would you try another book from Greg Dean and/or Greg Dean?

    As a professional comedian with 11 years high level performance experience, I downloaded this audiobook because I was simply curious - I was intrigued that someone had actually created a


    What could Greg Dean have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Nothing, the book was well presented.


    What aspect of Greg Dean’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing. Maybe more live clips of his own performances, delivery style/s and audience responses. Good and Bad. THAT would have been great!


    Any additional comments?

    On the whole - good work Greg.

    Ok, so I am pretty sure I will never use anything learned from this book. So what! I was entertained by every minute of this book and still find James May to be my favorite of the Top Gear hosts. This book is a must for any of his fans.

    Being given yet another pointless 'man manual' that told him 50 ways to tie a bow tie in under 30 seconds made James May certain there was a need for another kind of book. This book, in fact. He reckons there are nine vital things that a chap should be able to do.

Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman. People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen.

    This is a collection of jokes and stories assembled from 37 years of getting jokes told to me or getting them on the internet. It is 8 1/2 by 11 format and 400 pages of material. The actual book weighs over 2 pounds. It is ideal for salesmen, Public Speakers, Master of Ceremonies, or just breaking the ice. Many of these jokes and stories have sexual innuendo, and they are not politically correct. There is over 13 1/2 hours of jokes and funny stories to entertain you. You will love some of them.
