    Haven't read a funny book for ages...but I read "The Single Girl's To-Do-List" by Lindsey Kelk a few years ago. Load of trash but gave me a great chuckle :3

    'How to Be a Woman' by Caitlin Moran is hilarious at points. Also 'Letters of a Lovestruck Teenager' by Claire Robertson has me weeping with laughter every time - it's the most 90s thing you'll ever read in your life, but I just adore it.

    Also - Louise Rennison.

    The funniest book I have ever read is 'The concise Chinese- English dictionary for lovers' so funny on so many levels. Definitely worth a read

    I find Just William books hilarious! People always look at me weirdly in the train when I laugh out loud though... :mmm:
    Oh my, me too!

    May contain traces of magic and the portable door by Tom Holt. A very funny author!

    I'm currently chortling my way through I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan which I somehow hadn't gotten around to reading until now, and it's probably the funniest book I've ever read. Literally laugh-a-page stuff.

    I'm a fan of Charlie Brooker's books too, but I'm not sure they count as they've essentially been taken from his Guardian columns.

    I find the written comedy just as funny as TV comedy and wondered whether anyone had any other recommendations? The wackier the better...

    My Comedy Book Bucketlist
    DBC Pierre's Vernon God Little
    Squire Haggard's Journal
    Bill Bryson's Notes from a Small Island
    Danny Wallace's Yes, Man
    Hugh Laurie's The Gun Seller
    Kingsley Amis's Lucky Jim
    John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces
    Charlie Croker's Lost in Translation
    Thanks for starting this thread, I'm always looking for decent, well-written books with a fair amount of comedy. So many new titles, although great are all a bit 'doom and gloom'.

    Frankie Boyle's "My **** Life So Far" had me in tears. Jon Richardson's "It's Not Me, It's You" was hilarious too.

    Lolito by Ben Brooks, or Submarine by Joe Dunthorne. Unbelievably realistic and biting turn of phrase.

    I forgot about submarine. Got to agree it's very funny. Have you seen the film?
