The Penguin Podcast: Comedy feat. Jennifer Saunders, Jack & Michael Whitehall and Graeme Simsion

[Download mp3]

Us Penguins are a cheery folk - always smiling and squawking with delight.  It's no wonder, really, with the witty and comedic personalities regularly coming through our doors, some of which are featuring in this episode of the Penguin Podcast.  Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project, leads this podcast in introducing the other authors.  For starters we have an interview with a Bonkers comedian-turned-author, Jennifer Saunders; a father and son comedy act in the form of Jack and Michael Whitehall, who introduce their book Him & Me; a literary comic genius, Catherine O'Flynn, talking to us about her latest book Mr Lynch's Holiday; a hilarious audiobook extract from Book 7 of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series The Third Wheel, by Jeff Kinney, as well as some tips, advice and general musings from the protagonist of Graeme's book Professor Don Tillman.
