Paul  Bokowski - Alone You Are Less Together


Humour as dry as dust and brilliant powers of observation

Self-confessed neurotic Paul Bokowski uses tact and bang-on analysis to turn the most harmless of situations into wonderfully humorous stories. Like the adventure of a wandering washing machine, for example, or the helplessness of a city dweller at finding a recently hatched chicken in his own kitchen. Or take the silent fight for leg room in crowded trains; or the story of Czech workmen who stay overnight for cost-saving reasons. Paul Bokowski finds absurdities in human relationships and coaxes the greatest possible degree of humour out of insignificant incidences. Apart from the sneaking fear that it really did happen, what remains is the tongue-in-cheek realisation that alone you are less together…

"He quite simply has the knack of telling funny stories without drifting off into the ridiculous."

Radio Fritz
