Synopsis

The Very Best of the Secret Policeman's Ball The Greatest Comedy Line-up Ever by Amnesty International

This is the most celebrated comedy routines in British history, from a remarkable comedy institution. From the infamous Dead Parrot Sketch to Michael Palin's 'I'm a Lumberjack' song; Peter Cook's peerless E.L. Wisty monologues to Rowan Atkinson's school-master's roll-call; and on through to the latest generation led by Eddie Izzard, Dylan Moran, Jack Whitehall and Russell Brand. This definitive collection brings together the very best of Amnesty International's Secret Policeman shows.

Reviews

'Freewheeling, contagious and delightful' Guardian

'Without the Secret Policeman's Ball there may never have been a Comic Relief or a Live Aid.' Telegraph

About the Author

Amnesty International is an international human rights non-governmental organisation with over three million members and supporters around the world. Founded in London in 1961, Amnesty draws attention to human-rights abuses and campaigns, works to mobilise public opinion and put pressure on the governments that let abuse take place, and aims to protect people wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied. The organisation was awarded the 1977 Nobel Peace Prize for its campaign against torture, and the United Nations Prize in the Field of Human Rights in 1978.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.
