The Sound of Laughter Isn’t Necessarily Funny is a catalogue in the form of a cassette tape by Jonathan Monk published after the show The Sound of Laughter Isn’t Necessarily Funny held in Monk’s home town of Leicester. The catalogue comprises a five panel concertina booklet printed in gold and black with jewel case and prison cassette.
