    Well they say write about what you know and Katy Brand sure knows about the comedy circuitIn many ways this reminded me of The Singer by Cathi Unsworth There is a lot of fun in trying to guess who the characters are based on in both books Here we have the full range of comedians from aggressive antipodeans to angry feminists to the bitter j

    There may be people who think Brenda Monk is funny although based on the snippets from her stand up routine I am definitely not one of those people but this book was neither funny nor interesting It was in fact a sort of bizarre plough on regardless charting of Brenda's attempt to become a stand up comic But there was no wit no warmth It was almost like a report The characters were mostly flat and one dimensional I didn't care about any of

    Great read It's a girl discovers her strengthher talentherself story but in a fresh environment that's contemporary and suitable for the whole point of it I also bought it at the Edinburgh International Book Festival so it's all full circle because that's where the action really starts for Brenda

    Very readable and at times amusing An interesting insight into the rather nasty world of stand up comedy Well written Not entirely sadisfying but I would read another novel if Katy Brand writes one

    I was initially disappointed because I thought it would be funny It's ABOUT comedy and once you realise that it's ok

    A disappointing book It was interesting to read for a flavour of what it's really like starting out as a stand up comedian but as a novel there was no conflict or jeopardy just a straight account of what happened Sufficiently interesting for me to finish it but I never picked it up with that tantalising frisson of 'what'

    Very compelling I read it uickly wanting to know how things would pan out for Brenda You really find yourself wanting her to succeed A bit of wish fulfilment and romance but no standard romcom here Also some fun background for those interested in the UK stand up comedy scene

Brenda Monk is a true stand up by her very nature it is under her skin; itching and bubbling She is addicted to the feeling of being on stage looking out at expectant up turned mouths waiting for the first laugh to hit A first laugh that will not happen unless she creates it But Brenda is clueless The on off girlfriend of a prolific comedian it is on. Great read It s a girl discovers her strengthher talentherself story but in a fresh environment that s contemporary and suitable for the whole point of it I also bought it at the Edinburgh International Book Festival so it s all full circle because that s where the action really starts for Brenda

Brenda Monk is Funny

Ly after she realises his best stage material consists of recycled versions of her own restless smart arsed energy that she begins to wonder whether she might be better off keeping her jokes for herself and so she finds herself making her very first walk to the mark on stage in front of a bare brick wall with just a spotlight and a PA system for cove. I was initially disappointed because I thought it would be funny It s ABOUT comedy and once you realise that it s ok

R wondering what we all wonder from time to time am I funny A book as much about the thrill of performance as it is about what goes on when the microphone is switched off Brenda Monk is Funny is a blackly humourous and devastatingly candid snapshot of the reality the brutality and fragility of the comedy industry from an exciting new voice in fiction. Very compelling I read it uickly wanting to know how things would pan out for Brenda You really find yourself wanting her to succeed A bit of wish fulfilment and romance but no standard romcom here Also some fun background for those interested in the UK stand up comedy scene
