Disgusting Bliss

UK Publisher: Simon & Schuster

The Sun newspaper asked if Chris Morris’s 2001 Brass Eye Special on paedophilia was ‘the sickest TV ever?’ It was certainly the most controversial, though Morris’s uncompromising style of comedy has meant he has rarely been far from trouble.

With the imminent release of Morris’s jihadi comedy Four Lions, there has never been a better moment to reflect on his career to date. This book follows the group of writers and performers brought together by Armando Iannucci for the 1991 news satire On the Hour, which transferred from radio to television where it was reinvented as the equally successful The Day Today. Drawing on exclusive new interviews, this book creates a compelling portrait of Morris from his earliest radio days to Brass Eye. THIS IS THE NEEEWWWS!
