The comic is often thought to be particularly subjective. This collection of comic poetry illustrates this breadth of humour. It straddles several centuries and includes poetry by figures such as Shakespeare, Rochester, Donne, Gay, Byron, Keats, and Betjeman.

Nearly anyone typically stumped by poetry will enjoy this solid collection of classic comic verse. (And poetry aficionados will enjoy it twice as much!) The poems range from standard poetic structure–couplets, triplets, quatrains, ballads, and sonnets–to the whimsy of limericks, proverbs, and nonsense verse. Not only are the pieces delivered with high energy and flawless articulation, they're genuinely funny! Part of the thrill of this audio production is the moment the listener realizes he's laughing at a joke made over three hundred years ago. Now THAT'S classic humor.
