About Book

'The setting is a schoolroom near Manchester where an evening class of budding comics congregate for a final briefing from their tutor before facing an agent's man from London. Telling jokes for money offers an escape from the building site or the milk round. But the humour is a deadly serious business that also involves anger, pain and truth.' Financial Times

'Trevor Griffiths has not shown his brilliance as a writer more clearly than in Comedians.' Daily Telegraph
