Publisher's Summary

Comedians Elis James and John Robins have captured the hearts and minds of a generation, and it's time those hearts and minds had a book.

Elis and John met in 2005 performing stand-up comedy in a pub called The Yellow Kangaroo in Cardiff. They eyed each other suspiciously before Robins offered the limpest handshake in the history of the world.

'It was a power play,' says Robins. 'I may even have raised it for him to kiss.' 

James expands: 'It was one of the weirdest things I'd ever experienced, but having known John now for over a decade, it was the tip of the iceberg. I can honestly say he's the oddest man I've ever met.'

Little did they know that 10 years later they would be presenting a radio show together that would make them comedy royalty.... Okay, radio comedy royalty... Okay, commercial digital indie radio royalty... But with a podcast! 

Now, The Elis James and John Robins' Show has become cult listening, and that cult has registered for charitable status, published quarterly accounts and been given a full blessing by the Archbishop of Broadcasting. It's official: Elis and John are a religion, and this book is their Holy Vible.

Our obsessions make us what we are, and though you may never have addressed a will to Brian May or cried watching Ronnie O' Sullivan make a 147, you'll have done something similar, and Elis and John are here to tell you that you're not weird, so come on in, and taste the vibe! Or should I say, listen to the vibe!

Critic Reviews

"Elis and John have created the funniest, most original and hilariously personal radio show of the last decade. Which is quite annoying for people like me who have also been trying to be funny on the radio in that time." (Josh Widdicombe)

Anecdotes and Punchlines. It got me on e-mail.

Anecdotes and Punchlines. Filled with stories of shame, regret and welshman's thighs. I've finally joined the revolution that is being on e-mail (you simply have to be these days).

Excellent, funny book from two lovely people

This was a wonderful and fun book to listen to. But also it was moving, thought provoking and inspiring.

The only draw back was poor editing with some words or sentences being repeated or silences at inappropriate times. But don’t let this put you off ordering this book and enjoying it! It really is lovely stuff

Very Funny

The narration by Elis and John is excellent and I like how they added conversation and explanations around reading the text of the book. The different chapters all have humour in them, but some are genuinely hard hitting and I found very helpful. A must if you’ve ever heard the podcast and well worth a go if you haven’t. Best audible book I’ve listened to in ages!
