Following his hugely popular account of the previous 2000 years, John O’Farrell brings British history bang up to date with An Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain – Or 60 Years of Making the Same Stupid Mistakes as Always. In this hilarious modern history, O’Farrell – one of Britain’s best-known comedy writers and Grumpy Old Men – informs, elucidates and laughs at all the bizarre events, ridiculous characters and stupid decisions that have shaped Britain’s story since 1945. A session guaranteed to make you laugh!
John O’Farrell studied history at Desborough Comprehensive, where he got a B in his O level. He later continued his research by watching lots of programmes about the Nazis on the UK History Channel. Apart from that he has published three novels, a memoir and three collections of his popular Guardian column. A former comedy scriptwriter for such shows as Spitting Image and Smith and Jones, he is the founder of the satirical website NewsBiscuit and can occasionally be spotted on such TV programmes as Grumpy Old Men, Newsnight Review and Have I Got News For You.
