Book recommended to all fans of 'Whose Line' and of the one and only Colin Mochrie, the wittiest of all the cast.

Not Quite 'Whose Line' But Who Cares? July 12 2013
By Robert F Gilleece - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Colin Mochrie has done exactly what he set out to do. He made a point, in his introduction, of stressing how little work he liked to do. Well this book comes across as too much fun to be called work! I am not saying that he didn't work hard, but the great ones always make their job seem easy.
Each chapter is constructed from the first and last lines of classic stories with the meat of the sacrilegious sandwich provided by the author. The result is one hell of a delicatessen!
He put a little of himself into each story (actually, more than a little into the chapter entitled "Moby"). The narrative of each tale flows smoothly and just when you think you know where the story is going - it ends! Followers of his live comedy and TV appearances will immediately recognize his departures and non-sequitors; the rhythm and cadence of the characters' protestations are unmistakable!
The reader imagines Colin talking himself into a corner and wishing a Ryan Styles or Brad Sherwood was there to help him escape. Even though he was stuck with nothing but his reflection in the literary mirror he did not disappoint. This book is an insight into what a real fan could only hope for: "An Evening with Colin Mochrie and Colin Mochrie".

Great for fans of classic literature! Aug. 4 2013

If you like whose line, you'll love this book. I could hear Colin Mochrie in my head while I was reading it and ghat just made me laugh more. As an English teacher I really loved the concept of these short stories and I'll be using them in class to inspire the kids with their own short stories. Great book for fans of classic literature!

Colin is hilarious. The impromptu act doesn't translate to paper as well as I had hoped, but I still found the stories amusing.

A couple of stories I thought were particularly funny. Especially after you figure out who he's really talking about on one or two stories. I think Ryan Stiles would be great for an audio book on the last story.

Innovative, intelligent and most importantly - extremely funny, NQTC could have been the result of a collaboration between Spike Milligan and Woody Allen, edited by a Canadian erudite who didn't half expect the Spanish Inquisition.
A real treat.
