The Inimitable Jeeves by P G Wodehouse

A series of episodes, rather than a novel, but no less entertaining for that. I think it must have been written relatively early in the process of creating the Jeeves and Wooster canon, as the character of Wooster lacks the full depth and irony he displays in, say, Joy in the Morning.

But a delight, nonetheless. The funniest bits are those that concern the creation of betting slates on events like the delivery of sermons by a clutch of clergymen or the races at a children’s sports day. Hilarious chat about being ‘sporting’.

Funny, funny, funny.
