Comedy in the Bible


The Bible is not generally considered a funny book. In fact, much comedy has been derived from its seriousness. And yet the Bible contains Whitehall farces, knock-about slapstick, wordplay, and plenty of rude bits. James Cary hopes to point them out to you and explain why little donkeys are funny, especially when Jesus rides them.

James Cary is a comedy writer. He wrote Think the Unthinkable and cowrote Concrete Cow and The House of Milton Jones for BBC Radio 4.
