We've all had them, those pointless arguments that are seemingly impossible to solve. We've been round in circles trying to work out what came first, the chicken or the egg? Don't get us started on the debate of what we are all here for? And you're bound to have had sleepless nights pondering which ingredient you simply can't do without in a full English Breakfast - sausage or bacon. Well worry no more, here to help you solve some of life's biggest - and most pointless - conundrums are Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman. So, does God exist? and what is the most pointless sport - ballet or darts? With a witty and intelligent collection of stand-up pieces, quizzes, cryptic brainteasers and pointless facts, Alexander Armstrong and his pointless friend Richard Osman will put the world to rights and finally answer the 100 Most Pointless Arguments in the World...Ever.
From the presenters of hit BBC One show Pointless comes a brilliant new collection of laugh-out-loud stand up pieces, quizzes and utterly pointless facts.
Reviews for The 100 Most Pointless Things in the World Varied 'Pointless is a fascinating microcosm of life: as this formidable tome reveals, success therein depends on a combination of intelligence, chance and having a good partner.' Sir Tim Rice 'I love Pointless. It's funny, and it makes me feel less thick. Like all the best dates.' Sarah Millican 'We gave 100 people 100 seconds to name the greatest show in the history of television. There was only one pointless answer and it was Pointless. And now in book form.' Stephen Fry The must-have present. Kate Skipper, The Independent
