Matt Millz LOVES stand up comedy. He’s studied the best. He’s memorized all the advice. He spends hours writing new gags and thinking up crazy sketches . . . So when the school run a talent contest, of course he’s going to enter.

What he doesn’t count on is:
Last minute total meltdown
His best mate pulling out zero seconds before going on
Teeny tiny Kitty Hope and her own bonkers ambitions
His stepdad’s own ‘funny’ ideas
And headmaster, Meredith Pavey, who very definitely has it in for him.

Comedy gold from a comedy genius.

Critic Reviews

Heard the one about the comedian who wrote a really impressive children’s book? I’m not sure I had — but that has all changed now, thanks to Harry Hill. Hill seems to know instinctively what makes kids crack up ... this has been written with love and care — crafted for children rather than his ego. Applause.
