Knock-Off!: An Absurd Sitcom Novel

Christian Frank

Embark on another uproarious journey through the wacky world of "Write-Off!" with "Knock-Off!" - the third installment in this sidesplitting suburban saga that will have you rolling with laughter and eagerly turning the pages for more.

Join Tony Fawcett, the self-absorbed dreamer with aspirations of literary greatness, as he finds himself caught up in a brand-new whirlwind of absurdity within his unconventional household. Alongside his dim-witted half-brother Gerald, the death-obsessed lodger in the back garden caravan Louis Rodgers, and the insatiable Jean Temple, Tony faces a fresh array of comedic challenges that stretch the limits of their eccentric camaraderie.

In "Knock-Off!" Tony's pursuit of literary fame takes a hilarious turn when Floyd Grant concocts a pilot talk show about people who are overweight and unattractive, leaving Tony scratching his head for potential assistance. Meanwhile, the local newspaper stirs up excitement with a reward for photographs of a purported UFO sighting, sparking chaos and hilarity among the group.

As if that weren't enough, Gerald stumbles upon a surprising psychic ability, leading to a series of unfortunate, yet somehow orchestrated, events that test the bounds of reality and reason. And amidst it all, Tony's desire to write an unauthorized autobiography throws the household into disarray, prompting laughter, chaos, and unexpected revelations, hurtling them all toward a climactic showdown that will test their bonds like never before.

If you're a fan of side-splitting sitcoms and outrageous comedy series, "Knock-Off!" promises a laugh-out-loud journey you won't want to miss. Get ready for another rollercoaster ride of laughter, love, and ludicrous escapades in this uproarious continuation of the "Write-Off!" saga!

Why "Write-Off!" is a Must-Read Enigma:

BBC Approved: Praised by Will Banks, Programmes Editor at BBC Radio Cleveland, as something "funny, slightly touching, and something I'd love to see developed in some way. Think comedy on Radio 4."

Fearlessly pushing boundaries of conventional comedy: As emphasized by Victoria Lloyd from BBC Light Entertainment Radio, "Radio 4 has quite a conformist attitude to what can and can't be said. If you took out everything they'd frown upon, you wouldn't have very much left."
