Colin Mochrie, a man known worldwide for working without a script, tackles the classics in this surprising, delightful collection of stories

Borrowing from a well-known improv game, Mochrie takes the first and last lines from familiar classics and reimagines everything in between. With the same engaging humour he exhibits on stage, television, and film, he takes the reader in bizarre and hilarious new directions.

Imagine Herman Melville's Moby-Dick featuring a killer toupée. Imagine Sherlock Holmes doing stand-up and The Night Before Christmas with a time-travelling twist. This inspired collection is comical, quirky, and clever—classic Mochrie.

Colin Mochrie was born in Scotland and grew up in Canada. He is best known for his roles on Whose Line Is It Anyway? and This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and as host of Are You Smarter Than a Canadian 5th Grader? He was influenced by the writings of Charles Dickens, Dr. Seuss, and Stephen King, and fulfilled his lifelong ambition to write a book after his agent forced him into it. Mochrie lives in Toronto with his wife, Debra, his son, Luke, and two dogs that won't come when called.

“Colin Mochrie is devastatingly handsome, perilously smart, and smells like warm maple syrup. Step inside his hilarious and complex mind, and abandon all hope.” - Aisha Tyler

“Colin’s greatest attributes are his unique sense of humor, his kindness to his fellow man, and his uncanny ability to retain everything I’ve taught him the last 30 years.” - Ryan Stiles

“I adore Colin Mochrie. I think he is brilliant, so talented AND a dear sweet man. Also, he’s funny as well and a good kisser!” - Florence Henderson

“Colin Mochrie is a comedic and creative force to be reckoned with. Therefore, this book is a literary force to be reckoned with. If you are too lazy for reckoning, just read this book and everything will work out nicely.” - Brad Sherwood

“I love Colin. I love his voice. I love his lips. I love his eyeballs. His pecs. And the rest of him. I’m going to Paris with him soon.” - Richard Simmons
