Nicholas Parsons to Write ‘Just a Minute’ Book

16th September 2013


Comedian and after dinner speaker, Nicholas Parsons will write the first ever book about his radio show, ‘Just a Minute’.

The book will be called ‘Welcome to Just a Minute’ and launched at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Radio 4 show began 45 years ago and Nicholas has been in all 804 episodes. The book will be published by Canongate and will look at the history of the show, it will also include contributions from regular panellists.

Speaking about his up and coming book, Nicholas stated “While it is my responsibility as chairman to guide the show, I consider it equally important to generate the fun we create in what is a truly unscripted and spontaneous programme, and it is an honour to be asked to bring the spirit of the show into book form.”

The book will be popular among those who have been loyal fans of ‘Just a Minute’ and they will be able to reminisce over old episodes. The editor of Canongate, Jenny Lord spoke about her love for the show, saying “I’ve been tuning in to Just A Minute for as long as I can remember. A British comedy institution, it is consistently brilliant and no surprise that after 45 years, it is still our best-loved radio comedy.”
