In the latest edition of RULE OF THREE, we mention this newly published book by Jem Roberts - which tells the story of Fry and Laurie, and is packed with unseen sketches and all that sort of thing.
Essential reading for any fan of Fry and Laurie, though, it has to be said, less than essential reading for someone who always preferred Hale and Pace. Suffice to say, our teenage selves are annoyed with us that this book exists now and not, say, in 1990, when we would have worshipped it as a god.

and if you want more Micallef - of course you do - there are some great compilations and clips on Youtube. This one's a good place to start:
