Seriously Funny

Hay Festival 1997 , 
"The most dangerously funny writer in the English Language" - The Sunday Times - explores the ungentle art of laughter from Aristophanes to Bernad Manning. He argues that we resemble beasts more closely than we resemble gods, and we make great fools of ourselves the moment we forget it.
