Richard Wilson is a TV and radio producer and gag writer. He produces prestigous comedy shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Have I Got News For You and is currently Head of Comedy Entertainment at Hat Trick Productions. His first humour title, Can't Be Arsed: 101 Things NOT To Do Before You Die (Portico) sold over 100,000 copies. His latest book, Those Were the Days... My Arse, is a sideswipe at those who idealise the dangerous childhood games of old. In How Not to Talk Like an Arse, Wilson argues the case against 101 Modern Words, to avoid using - unless you want to sound like an Arse.
