Publisher's Summary

The complete Series 1 and 2 of the BBC Radio comedy starring Dawn French as Professor Joy Klamp.

Spoiling someone else's fun can be the most satisfying of all the controlling arts, and Professor Joy Klamp—the queen of migraines—has got passive aggression down to a fine art. And now, she's decided to share her knowledge with the world in this revelatory 10-part course in non-joyment techniques. So join Joy and her Sourpussy Posse and get in touch with your inner spoilsport, experience the fulfilling empowerment of sulkiness, and learn how you, too, can master the universe!

In Series 1, we take a tour through the miserable worlds of the workplace, relationships, parties, holidays, food and drink, and Christmas. And in Series 2, we investigate the fun that can be had—at other people's expense—with DIY, travel, children and ruining other people's weekends....
