Product Description

Review

'This is a refreshingly intelligent and engaging book, offering a wide range of critical, sociological and theoretical approaches to recent trends in television comedy. Wragg's collection is at once very contemporary in its feel and aware of current comedy's cultural heritage; so Seinfeld, is considered alongside I Love Lucy, M*A*S*H and Cheers.' - Sight&Sound
