Great, Silly Grin: The British Satire Boom of the 1960s
Humphrey Carpenter (au)
The British satire “boom” of the early 1960s created a motherlode of styles, material, & formats for generations of bright comedians & social critics in America as well as in Britain, & set the standard for clever humor that still determines our tastes in comedy today. Carpenter’s history of this tumultuous & exciting era introduces us not only to the people involved in its creation -- people like Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Michael Frayn, Jonathan Miller, Alan Bennett, & David Frost -- but also to the routines & sketches of Britain’s comedic “invasion” These satirists were some of Britain’s most affluent sons, & yet they turned their culture on its head from the inside. “The first detailed, scholarly account of this peculiar episode in British cultural history.”
