Publisher's Summary

Where the art of improvisation meets the art of literature.
Based on the improv game First Line, Last Line, Colin Mochrie of Whose Line Is It Anyway? fame, puts a unique spin on works of classic literature. Taking the first line and last line from classic books and poems, Colin recasts these familiar stories in his own trademark offbeat style:

A verbose coyote becomes the star of A Tale of Two Critters
Ishmael is a struggling actor hunting for a good hair day in Moby
A rainy day at home becomes a zombie-killing adventure in The Cat and My Dad
Mighty Casey strikes out again in Casey at the Bar
These stories, and many more, prove that no literary masterpiece is too big, or too small, for the improvisational comedy treatment.

is this supposed to be a biography?

I really admire Colin s hilarious work on the whose line show. He is definitely one of the funniest of not THE funniest guy on the show. but I was expecting a bio. This is just Colin acting out various characters, probably narrating the story in an unconventional manner. But I just don't "get it".

for what seems to be hours long, he narrates like Sherlock Holmes, then this ismail character comes in in the next chapter. As I said,i really don't get it.

Colin is funny, this book... not so muxh
