Jem: Explain Yourself!

FROOD AT CHORTLE BOOK FEST

Chortle Book Fest 2014 – The Frood

Jem Roberts is a series of nouns. Here are some of the less offensive ones:

Author, Storyteller, Performer, Editor, Comedy Historian, Veteran Games Journalist, Production Editor, Frank Welker Impersonator, Humanist, Voice Artist, Baritone, Pseudo Comedian, Pseudo Actor, Reliable Compére, Ukulele Player, Kazoo Virtuoso, Recording Artist, Mythology Obsessive, Folklorist, Squash Connoisseur, Non-Ginger, Beardy Folkie, Frustrated Swimmer, Native Ludlovian, Adopted Bathonian, Large Beast In General.

My work has appeared in publications as diverse as GamesMaster, The Telegraph, SFX, Rolling Stone, Xbox World, The Independent, Disney & Me, Total Film, BBC News online, ImagineFX and many more, and I’ve appeared on BBC Radio 4 as an expert on innuendo…

This last honour came courtesy of being the official chronicler of the nation’s favourite radio comedy, I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue – and also, the nation’s favourite sitcom, Blackadder. My third book, DOUGLAS ADAMS: THE FROOD – the Very Official Authorised 35th Anniversary Celebration of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – is in some shops now, you’ll have to find out which ones.

I’m just having a think about the fourth… Email jem@jemroberts.com if I can ever be of any help.

    Some of those reek of verbs… Surely there must be some verbs involved, otherwise you wouldn’t get very far as an author.

    Ditto, a great read. One wee irritant tho. The kakapo is the world’s heaviest parrot & very far from small!
