Bookbabble Episode 72: Books That Make You Laugh!
Recorded 6 June  2010
Babblers: Lone, Marcel, Renee, Donny

Synopsis:

450book13moore

What are the books that make the babblers break into a smile?  Perhaps even outright laughter?(Although it must be said that would look weird.  Good for clearing a space for you in public transports, though).  Anyway, babblers list out some interesting picks here, and in true Bookbabble style, a most varied and eclectic mix indeed.  Not just funny books, mind you, but satirical and cynical yet darkly humorous works are also covered.  Plus, critically-acclaimed poet who’s actually crap, and Marcel goes postal.  “Some people shouldn’t be allowed to write!”, he wails.

Neil Gaiman in The Colbert Report

Mar 19, 2009 by

Sandman author Neil Gaiman appears in The Colbert Report discussing The Graveyard Book.

Not the best interview I’ve seen, despite all the good vibes Gaiman himself was getting from having done the interview (from his blog, you see). 

Have a look see for yourself.  Original link to Colbert Nation is here.
