This is Craig Brown

A selection from the vast archive of Britain’s ‘unofficial satirist laureate’ that spans the last twenty years. Here is mockery, farce, malapropism, light verse, pastiche, spoonerism, phonetics, social observation and nonsense. From Ken Tynan to Max Clifford, nobody escapes. Auberon Waugh, not known for handing out plaudits lightly, once described Brown as having ‘a genius which transcends mere parody to become, through the occasional touch of real anger bathed in surreal farce, a work of art’.
