‘As they used to say at my old school which didn’t have a head boy – nobody’s prefect’

TIM VINE The Tim Vine Bumper Book of Silliness Comedian and TV star Tim Vine delivers a jam-packed, laugh-a-minute assortment of hilarious silliness. Welcome to The Tim Vine Bumper Book of Silliness. Put your 3D glasses on NOW. And then remove them because they won’t make any difference. I’ve filled it with silly jokes, daft quizzes, zany pictures and silly daft zany other stuff too, as well. This is a bit like an annual. Annual love it. We live in a very serious world but now and again it’s good to forget about that and say things like ‘lozenge waffle’ or ‘giraffe sprocket’. Ideally to a stranger. So, lovely readers, I hope this book tickles you. Some people would rather read about magnets. I can’t see the attraction. Tim Vine is a British comedian, writer, actor and presenter. He starred in the BBC series Not Going Out, has written joke books and has released four comedy DVDs. Tim Vine’s latest live tour played to over 60,000 people in 73 shows. Tim regularly appears at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; his shows were sell-outs in 2011 and 2012. Renowned for being a gag-a-minute punster, Tim Vine won the award for best joke at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2010, and came second in 2011 and 2012. The Biggest Ever Tim Vine Joke Book has sold over 54,000 copies. Tim broke the Guinness World Record for the most jokes told in an hour, with a gargantuan 499 jokes told. He is active on social networks and has over 140,000 followers on Twitter.
