The Ian Gardhouse Collection comprises a collection of just under 200 books on jokes and comedy, collected by Ian Gardhouse during his career as a radio producer of comic programmes, and for his own academic research.
The collection was deposited by Gardhouse in 2015.
Also deposited was a folder of monologues and gag scripts for radio shows 'The Treatment', 'Loose Ends', and 'Late News' (both BBC Radio 4) commissioned by Ian Gardhouse from D.A. Barham (Debbie Barham), and Tom Jamieson and Nev Fountain, and a copy of 'Cheers, Deb', a BBC Radio 4 programme produced by Ian Gardhouse, about Debbie Barham (1976-2003).
These books have been catalogued on the University of Kent's Library Search.
