The Guy Who Decides

by Jimmy Rees

Australia’s funniest, sharpest social media sensation, Jimmy Rees riffs off his wildly popular social media videos in this humour title for fans of Kitty Flanagan’s 488 Rules for Life and Un-cook Yourself by Nat’s What I Reckon.

Have you ever wondered who made the call on imperial measurements, collective nouns for animals, horoscopes and Olympic sports? What were they thinking? And why do parents insist on naming their children after cities, cars and smoothie ingredients? (Paris, Mercedes and Kale, we’re looking at you.)

The Guy Who Decides expands upon Jimmy Rees’s hilarious videos lampooning the absurd conventions and rules of our modern world through the outlandish characters of The Guy Who Decides (who appears to be several martinis deep at all times) and his underling, Jason. Meanwhile, from Brighton to Byron Bay and beyond, prepare to meet a bunch of Australians who are as funny/scary as they are uproariously familiar!

A regular on Australian television and now with his headline comedy show Meanwhile in Australia sold out across the country, Jimmy has become a multi-generational favourite and one of the most-watched social media personalities of recent years.
