The hilarious Philomena Cunk (the alter ego of British comic Diane Morgan) narrates her own encyclopedia of the world. Her voice and delightful British accent are half the fun as Cunk combines real facts with absurd falsehoods in this send-up of TV experts and historians. The best part is that she delivers the information without a hint of sarcasm. Americans and other non-Brits won't get some of the jokes or references to British television, film, and politics, but that doesn't matter. The creators of "Brush Strokes," a British sitcom that aired from 1986 to 1991, owe Cunk royalties for all the times she works the series into her entries. Want to know what happened during the Dark Ages, the reign of Henry VIII, or the conquests of Alexander the Great? Cunk has you covered.
