Publisher's Summary

Joey Cooley is a golden-curled child film star, the idol of American motherhood. Reginald, Third Earl of Havershot, is a boxing blue on a mission to save his wayward cousin from the fleshpots of Hollywood. Both are under anaesthetic at the dentists when something strange happens - and their identities are swapped. Suddenly Joey can use his six-foot frame to get his own back on his Hollywood persecutors. But Reggie has to endure everything Joey had to put up with in the horrible life of a child star - including kidnap. Laughing Gas is Wodehouse’s brilliantly funny take on the 'If I were you' theme - a wry look at the dangers of getting what you wish for in the movie business and beyond.

I love Wodehouse's use of language!

Would you consider the audio edition of Laughing Gas to be better than the print version?

I have only heard Laughing Gas, never read it, so I could not compare the print version with the audio. I love the way Jonathan Cecil reads this, though.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Reginald, Third Earl of Havershot is probably my favorite character.

Which character – as performed by Jonathan Cecil – was your favorite?

But Cecil performs Eggy really well. I also like the way he portrays the kid, Joey Cooley.

If you could take any character from Laughing Gas out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Definitely, Lord Havershot

Any additional comments?

Wodehouse's plots are silly, but his use of language is unbeatable.
