I don’t know about the four crap jokes mentioned in the title but these one-liners are well up to the Francis standard. The Canadian stand-up and actor is a popular performer in the UK and hit the comedy headlines last year by winning the Funniest Joke at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2012 (Q: You know who really gives kids a bad name? A: Posh and Becks). Comedy gold.

Synopsis

Pun Direction by Stewart Francis

'I was standing in the park today wondering, why does a Frisbee appear larger the closer it gets? And then it hit me.' Stewart Francis is the king of the smart one-liner, the brilliantly crafted, often punning gag delivered in his trademark deadpan style. In this, his first book, he presents 500 of his funniest, most perfectly formed gags plus hilarious cartoons and more.
