As a proofreader and copy editor, Nick Jones spends a lot of time working with words; however, all work and no wordplay would make Nick a dull boy, so to redress the balance, Nick likes to write jokes in his spare time.
His first joke book, Gagged and Bound – A Book of Puns, One-liners and Dad Jokes, was written during the summer of 2014 and was published by Full Media Ltd to much critical acclaim. It gained positive reviews from sites such as The Bookbag and Reader’s Favorite, and went on to become a best-seller under Puns and Wordplay on Amazon UK.
Gagged and Bound 2 was released less than a year later and received a similarly positive response, and in 2017 Nick returned with the third instalment (you’ll never guess what it was called). Described by one reviewer as a ‘master gagsmith’, Nick’s joke style is pun-based and has been compared to Gary Delaney, Tim Vine and Milton Jones.
Originally from Bristol, UK, Nick now lives in Congleton, UK, with his wife, kids, rabbits and cats. He has several joke books in the pipeline and will shortly be publishing his first illustrated children’s book. Watch this space!
