About this book

In the first full-length scholarly book on the comedy of Chris Morris, writers discuss his early DJ career, his pioneering radio satire, his television mockumentary, his experimental black comedy and his more recent move into filmmaking. No Known Cure approaches the work of Chris Morris from a diverse range of perspectives in order to fully grapple with his wide-ranging and groundbreaking media output.
