Louder and Funnier

Louder and Funnier

"Louder and Funnier" is a collection of articles written by P.G. Wodehouse for "Vanity Fair" magazine, first published as a book in the U.K. on March 10 1932 by Faber and Faber, London.

The articles cover a broad range of topics.

"Louder and Funnier" was also a dance tune, recorded by the Coon-Sanders Original Nighthawk Orchestra in 1927 and by at least two other bands in 1928. The title was most likely derived from a popular catch phrase of the day.
