Publisher Description

Comedian Tony Martin returns with another collection of tales from his life outside show business. Outrageous coincidences, disgraceful errors of judgement, ancient family disputes and misguided attempts to impress women are just part of the story. You'll be both amused and appalled as Martin establishes his own junior detective agency, discovers that his parents are censoring bare breasts from the National Geographic, has his braces repossessed by the government, ruins several plays in an attempt to find a girlfriend, gets caught two-timing his local video shop, mars an awards night with a burst of foul language, attends a racist dinner at an Indian restaurant, allows cameras to enter his every bodily orifice, and returns to his hometown to discover that his grandfather is not the man he thought he was. A Nest of Occasionals is a series of super-size set pieces from a life lived in miniature. But what does the title mean? There's only one way to find out.

Author Biography

Over the last 25 years, New Zealand-born comedian Tony Martin has had a crack at pretty much everything. He was a writer and performer on the cult TV comedies The D-Generation and The Late Show, and has made regular appearances on Kath & Kim and Thank God You're Here. His first book, Lolly Scramble, is now in its fourth printing. He currently writes for humour website The Scrivener's Fancy and will soon be displaying his ignorance of all things historical on SBS upcoming ADbc.
