The Wit and Wisdom of the North


Formats & editions


'All right, for them that likes laughing' - the first and ultimate book of northern wit and wisdom, from the bestselling author of Great British Wit and with a foreword by Stuart Maconie

Ey up, it’s not only footie, pints and pies that are better up north – the humour also takes some beating. Whether it’s comics like Peter Kay, Les Dawson and Victoria Wood, telly shows like Corrie and Open All Hours, or writers like Alan Bennett and Keith Waterhouse, the funniest and best-loved invariably hail from the land of perpetual drizzle (another thing they do better).

This grand collection of northern wit is packed with these favourites and more. Likely lads and lippy lasses cast a wry eye on subjects close to the heart of every northerner, including – brass, grub, graft, courting, cricket, tittle-tattle and t’weather – adding up to a feast of northern hilarity.
