A fun-filled exploration of Britishness from Paul Sinha, popular stand-up comedian, star of ITV’s The Chase, and fiercely proud Brit, this book delves into all aspects of British life, from arcane pub etiquette to the intricacies of the class system—hilariously! A fresh and exciting humor title from a breakthrough star of British comedy. Since 2005, well over one million prospective immigrants have attempted to cement permanent residency in the UK by taking the Home Office-devised "Life in the UK" test. With questions such as "What is the name of the admiral who died in a sea battle in 1805 and has a monument in Trafalgar Square, London?," it’s as dull as ditchwater and a hopelessly inadequate preparation for life as a fully functioning Brit. After all, there’s simply no point in knowing the exact span of the Hundred Years War if you don’t know about Alan Sugar, Nando’s, the rise of UKIP, and the dangers of ordering half a pint. In this hilarious yet factual guide to the ins and outs of British life, popular stand-up comedian, ITV quiz show villain, and fiercely proud Brit Paul Sinha guides you through the minefield. With sections on how to negotiate a pub, the joys of chicken tikka masala (and other British non-British dishes), the finer points of soccer fandom, British cities that hate each other, whether anyone really cares about religion, and—of course—how to behave in a queue, this chortlesome book is all you need if you want to call yourself a British citizen, whether you were born here or not.
Paul Sinha is an award-winning British stand-up comedian who is best known for his appearances on ITV’s hugely popular game show The Chase. He also appears regularly on Radio 4—his Paul Sinha’s British Citizenship Test show aired in 2013, and he has appeared on Loose Ends and  the Now Show.
