| Book Description: |
This book is the first sustained critical analysis of Cult British TV comedy from 1990 to the present day. The book examines 'post-alternative' comedy as both 'cult' and 'quality' TV, aimed mostly at niche audiences and often possessing a subcultural aura. It includes case studies of Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer and the sitcom writer Graham Linehan.
