Publisher's Summary

Read by Diane Morgan as Philomena Cunk, the star of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe and Cunk on Britain. 

A parody encyclopedia from the star of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe and Cunk on Christmas.

In the olden days, people used to learn about things from encyclopedias.

And that was really good, because you could read it, and learn it, then you could stop worrying about thinking. But now, with the Internet and more people and science and research, there's just too much knowledge - more every year - and it's overwhelming.

So, after years of asking the big questions - like 'what did people do before evolution?' and 'what is clocks?' - intrepid reporter and visionary philosopher Philomena Cunk is bringing the encyclopedia back with this definitive guide to everything you will ever need to know about, from Shakespeare to sausages, from evolutionary psychology to brush strokes.

Critic Reviews

"This book is great because it covers everything in existence apart from the 95% of stuff not worth bothering with." (Philomena Cunk, star of Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe, Moments of Wonder and Cunk on Britain)

Hilarious

Every single line has something perfectly daft about it. Brilliantly written and delivered only a way Diane can.

Samey

I really enjoyed this to begin with but as it continued it became very samey... and I am only up to the letter D! Without the other people's input, like in TV show, Philomena's usually excellent character doesn't have anyone to bounce off and it all becomes a bit monotonous. I am sad to give a bad review as I loved the TV series. I am going to stop listening for a while and maybe if I pick it in a year or so it will be funny again!

Hilarious and well worth a listen.

I loved this book and laughed my way through it all. Philomena does a marvellous job of narrating and I’d definitely recommend the book if you’d enjoy some humour in your life.

What a delight! Absolutely wonderful.

Right: where to start. This audiobook took a long time to listen to, a very long time. I kept having to skip back thirty seconds or more in order to re-listen to what I missed the first time around because I was laughing so much. Sense of humour is very personal; I have sometimes searched for comedy shows on TV, read the reviews, decided this could be funny, only to be disappointed. However, for me, Philomena Cunk is a star. This is an audiobook I will definitely be listening to again. I have also began heartily recommend it to friends, family and to anyone else really who will listen. Well done Philomena and well done audible for producing this audiobook. Note to the author: Perhaps you could extend the repertoire, I mean, after all, you’ve said nothing about wheelbarrows or percolated coffee the list goes on and on, as does the laughter.

Cunk Being Cunk

If you love Philomena Cunk's comedy, you'll love this.
I found also that some parts are taken from her stints on Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipes. However, most of the content is new.
