Colin Mochrie, a man known worldwide for working without a script, tackles the classics in this surprising, delightful collection of stories. Borrowing from a well-known improv game, Mochrie takes the first and last lines from familiar classics and reimagines everything in between. With the same engaging humour he exhibits on stage, television, and film, he takes readers in bizarre and hilarious new directions.

Imagine Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick featuring a killer toupée. Imagine Sherlock Holmes doing stand-up and The Night Before Christmas with a time-travelling twist. This inspired collection is comical, quirky, and clever—classic Mochrie.
