Rules for Life Omnibus by Kitty Flanagan

$25.00 Inc GST

This special omnibus combines comedian Kitty Flanagan's award-winning 488 Rules for Life with her rather prosaically titled sequel, More Rules for Life. Inside this blockbuster edition you'll find rules for every aspect of daily life, such as:

Pregnant women aren't magic lamps; don't rub them.
One to two squirts of perfume or aftershave is ample.
Never make eye contact with someone while eating a banana.
Once a month, hold your yoga tights up to the light and check the thread count.
And always, always, remove the lettuce before toasting a sandwich.

Witty, helpful and endlessly entertaining, this omnibus is the quintessential reference book with the power to change society…or, at least, make it a little less irritating.

'Rule no. 1 – Buy this book, laugh out loud, become a better person.'
Jason Alexander (Seinfeld)

The Rules for Life Omnibus is Kitty Flanagan's way of making the world a more pleasant place to live. Providing you with the antidote to every annoying little thing, these rules are not made to be broken.

About the Author: At school Kitty was a small, stick-like child with very large front teeth and fuzzy hair. Nothing much has changed. After several attempts at university, studying things as diverse as Spanish, poetry and PE teaching, the government introduced HECS and the free ride was over. No more enrolling for a semester of tertiary good times then dropping out.

Advertising beckoned because it seemed like the job that paid the most money for the least amount of qualifications. And for five years she masqueraded as a copywriter. Eventually she was fired. She doesn't know why and, more importantly, she doesn't care. So then she tried doing stand-up. And then she got a job on Full Frontal (a sketch show, not a nudie mag). And then she moved to London and did stand-up … heaps of it.

There was another sketch show, an English one this time, cryptically titled The Sketch Show. And there was a short film that won a few awards. After that, she wrote stuff for the BBC and Channel Four with writing partner Julia Davis of Nighty Night fame. Then Kitty moved back to Australia where she is now probably best known for her regular Tuesday appearances on The Project and most recently for her role as Rhonda in Working Dog's Utopia on the ABC. She also had a segment on Charlie Pickering's show The Weekly. Aware that stand-up is like a sport that must be practised, Kitty tours constantly.
