I was a bit sceptical when i bought this one because i thought Michael McIntyre is funny on telly because of the gestures and the way he moves around, how is it going to be to listen to something he wrote? Well, I was wrong. The book is fun and entertaining and I enjoyed it from beginning to the end!
"Life and laughing: My stroy"
I downloaded this for my holidays so I could lay back and listen while catching the rays :-)
It was so funny I kept laughing out loud, which always is louder than you realise!!
I think having Michael read you his book made it even better
Overall I would recommend this to anyone well worth as its like a stand up and book together
My husband and I listened to this book together whilst away for work it was brilliant hearing it read by Michael with some funny little extra bits when he went a bit off track which you wouldn't have had by reading alone. Overall the book is very funny and had us both laughing all the way through! Love Michael McIntyre!!
"life and laughing"
This book is not only funny and entertaining but is something you can easily relate to at some point in your life. This book is honest and truthful through out showing Michael's rise to fame was not always easy but he kept on going and achieved. Listening to this book as an audio book was better than i imagined and really kept me laughing through out. Definitely one i would recommend!
"Hilarious, Fantastic, Unmissable"
From start to finish this audio book in no way disappoints. Funny, touching, and poignant, Michael delivers a real treat. This audio book had me laughing out loud on the bus one minute and tears welling up the next. A definite must for anyone who enjoys a good laugh, I couldn't recommend it more!
"Fascinating insight into the comedy circle"
I'm a big fan of Micheal McIntyre's stand-ups. It was very fascinating to hear about the struggles he had on the comedy scene. Who would have thought that it took him years to reach the top. Stand-up seems so simple on tv or on stage but there is so much work and fierce competition behind it.
I also loved hearing about his live. He sounds like a nice guy and and actually very normal (in a good sense)
Added a lot to the book that he read it him self, cannot imagine it read by anyone else.
Very entertaining and interesting to listen to how McIntyre got started as a stand up comedian
"Absolutely fabulous and fun to listen to"
I have enjoyed listening to Michael's life story so much, I couldn't stop until I had heard it all. People saw me grinning, giggeling and even crying at times, as it was so touching in many ways. I feel now I'm a good old friend of him. I admire his honesty and find him utterly sympathetic and funny, and I can't wait to see one of his shows.
I really wish I hadn't picked this as my first audio book, as nothing I've
listened to since even comes close. It is the funniest book I've ever read, well listened to lol. I really liked Michael McIntyre before, I love him now.
"Fills you with life and laughter"
Absolutely the best and most emotive autobiography of any comedian. I want Michael to come and have dinner with us! Simply the best observer of human behaviour and its idiosyncrasies. Beautifully narrated by the man of the moment. If you have watched and laughed at McIntre's comedy shows, you will be totally absorbed by this listen. We laughed all the way to Scotland!
