‘Paul Kerensa's writing never fails to be uniquely funny and interesting.’
'Top comic, top writer, top bloke. Buy this book!'
‘Paul Kerensa is a jolly nice chap and he knows what's funny so if he's written a book I want to read it.’
Comedian Paul Kerensa is a church-hopper. Not because he can’t settle, but because his job sends him all over the country, every weekend. Every Friday and Saturday night he’s hurling jokes at audiences in different towns – it can be hen parties in Birmingham one weekend, a Cornish arts centre the next. His ritual has always been to find dirt-cheap Saturday night accommodation, and an enriching nearby church on Sunday morning.
In his experience, the churches are more diverse – and more often than not tougher gigs – than the secular comedy circuit.
So a Comedian Walks Into a Church … is the hilarious diary of Paul’s unusual life. Behind the gags, church-goers will learn some valuable lessons about how they present themselves to strangers.
