Comedian Ben Miller Names Waugh Among Favorites

The online edition of the Daily Mail carries an interview by Gwendolyn Smith of British comedian Ben Miller for the paper’s Event Magazine. Miller recently appeared in the BBC TV series Death in Paradise and has previously been seen in the the Armstrong and Miller shows on both Channel 4 and the BBC. He will present a new show called It’s Not Rocket Science starting next Tuesday on ITV.

In the Mail interview he describes his literary tastes:

Both my parents were English teachers, so I read a lot of books as a kid. Some of my favourites were by Dickens, and I adore Evelyn Waugh’s books, too. I remember crying with laughter over Decline And Fall and Scoop. I’ve read a lot of popular science recently, such as The Accidental Species by Henry Gee. It’s a really funny, punchy book that makes you think again about evolution.

Earlier this month he issued a book of his own entitled The Aliens Are Coming!:The Exciting and Extraordinary Science Behind Our Search for Life in the Universe.
