Book deal for Mitchell and Webb

First title out in 2009

David Mitchell and Robert Webb have signed a deal to write two comedy books.

The first, provisionally titled The Ways of Mitchell and Webb is scheduled to hit bookshops in time for Christmas 2009, with the second coming out a year later.

Publishers Fourth Estate promise a ‘lavish, fully-illustrated volume running to several hundred pages’.

Editor John Elliott said: ‘It will be a lot of fun working with David and Rob, and their books will be comedy classics—like everything they do.’

Mitchell added: ‘We're confident that, through this book, we can make Christmas 2009 the funniest in two millennia (barring tragic natural disasters).’
