Publisher's Summary

Read by Diane Morgan as Philomena Cunk, the star of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe and Cunk on Britain. 

A parody encyclopedia from the star of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe and Cunk on Christmas.

In the olden days, people used to learn about things from encyclopedias.

And that was really good, because you could read it, and learn it, then you could stop worrying about thinking. But now, with the Internet and more people and science and research, there's just too much knowledge - more every year - and it's overwhelming.

So, after years of asking the big questions - like 'what did people do before evolution?' and 'what is clocks?' - intrepid reporter and visionary philosopher Philomena Cunk is bringing the encyclopedia back with this definitive guide to everything you will ever need to know about, from Shakespeare to sausages, from evolutionary psychology to brush strokes.

Critic Reviews

"This book is great because it covers everything in existence apart from the 95% of stuff not worth bothering with." (Philomena Cunk, star of Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe, Moments of Wonder and Cunk on Britain)

Samey

I really enjoyed this to begin with but as it continued it became very samey... and I am only up to the letter D! Without the other people's input, like in TV show, Philomena's usually excellent character doesn't have anyone to bounce off and it all becomes a bit monotonous. I am sad to give a bad review as I loved the TV series. I am going to stop listening for a while and maybe if I pick it in a year or so it will be funny again!

Every single line has something perfectly daft about it. Brilliantly written and delivered only a way Diane can.

Funny, but perhaps better to read than as audio

Enjoyable audio, however the encyclopaedia format can get a bit repetitive when listening for large durations. I can imagine the book would work better if you want to put down and pick up at different points.

Hilarious and well worth a listen.

I loved this book and laughed my way through it all. Philomena does a marvellous job of narrating and I’d definitely recommend the book if you’d enjoy some humour in your life.

Funny in parts

I love this woman but I must admit to being a tad bored when listening for any length of time but some genuine laugh out loud moments

Hilarious

A must-listen! Fantastically written and read incredibly clearly, which is a relief as every gag is an absolute gem.
