"classic Jack Dee"
more sentimental than I had imagined. but a very good listen especially as read by the man himself.
"kept me amused"
kept me amused, much better than I was expecting having bored my self to sleep trying to listen to Stephen frys latest self indulgent offering.
"interesting and funny"
the interesting bits aren't funny and the funny bits aren't interesting. I found this an felt conflicted book, sometimes just ranty, sometimes actually telling his story.
"A fascinating and funny read"
The book was excellent, filled with funny stories from Jacks road to fame delivered in his signature dry voice. Would highly recommend thanks jack!
Hey, it's Jack Dee talking what more do you need? Apparently I've got to use an exact amount of words.
Jack Dee's observations of himself and other characters and situations he describes
laughed out loud throughout the book
now searching for more Jack Dee books
"Jack Dee is FUNNY!"
Definitely top 10. Top 5 of my fave comedy books!
Maybe Lee Evans, but Dee's is much funnier
His own take and how he tells the story. That's why he's so funny.
What happened to Jack.
This was really interesting. Well read in his inimitable voice. Laughed out loud a lot while listening in the car. Worth buying. Glad to say it wasn't all 'Showbiz" stuff but about his life up to his first success. Hope there will be a sequel.
Jack Dee's miserable
I find Jack's narration fantastic, it is his normal dry miserable best. Jack's Story is exactly as you would imagine it to be with him generally disliking life and everyone else in it.
If you read the book you would always be imagining him reading it, so why not just listen to him read it.
Yes, it filled a long car journey happily.
Couldn't recommend it more.
"a must listen."
that jack dee read it himself in his usual deadpan manner.
yes!!!!!! yes!!!!! yes. and I have listened to it three times now, once with my son. I will certainly buy more of his book's. very funny.
I will go back to this one again, as its so funny, in such a deadpan way as only jack dee can express.
