Publisher's Summary

"Jeremy Hardy�s New Year Cavalcade" is a glorious round-up of the year, an unmissable meditation on everything Yule and a healthy dose of comic Bisodol to flush away the memory of driving up the motorway for seven hours in the dark to spend quantity time with your family... With special guest stars Jack Dee, Armando Iannucci and John Oliver (The Daily Show), Jeremy looks at New Year�s Resolutions and the traditions and history of the calendar.. And finds that marking the end of one year and the start of another is not always simple. As Jeremy says - "Julius Caesar had to resynchronise the calendar with the sun by letting the year 47 BC run for 445 days. That�s one hell of a countdown when you�re standing with an itchy finger on the string of a party popper..." "The master of quietly inflammatory comedy" - (The Evening Standard) "Made me drop the kettle in shock , but worth it" - (The Daily Telegraph) "The one-liners come hit the target time and again so that you�ve hardly stopped grinning from one gag before the next one comes along" - (The Evening Standard)
