Ian Allen is a father of three teenagers and a funny man indeed. He has been a freelance editor from Staffordshire - recently voted England's least amusing county - for the past 15 years and during that time Ian has worked on dozens of joke books, a handful of which were even intended to be comical. Ian is qualified to degree-level in Data Processing, which is also hilarious.
Ian Allen recently withdrew from the human race after being lapped for the third time by his children, and is now a professional Dad. He isn't anywhere near as funny as he thinks he is, which is quite tragic because even he doesn't think he's particularly funny. His books of other people's jokes, however, have been known to provoke the odd chuckle.
