John Birmingham is a satirist, newspaper columnist, writer and blogger. He’s also a man who knows how to find the funny in most situations. The cover of his latest book, Stranger Thingies sees comedian, Wil Anderson going so far as to say that if laughter is the best medicine then he’s claiming Birmingham’s book on Medicare. Stranger Thingies draws together Birmingham’s funniest columns from the last twenty years, from the famous He Died with a Felafel in His Hand through to his more recent musings on Donald Trump. It’s fascinating to see how his work and sense of humour has evolved over time and one thing’s for certain, Birmingham is like a master storyteller-come-detective in that he always knows where to find the “lulz.”
