"Funny man strikes again"
Michael is always throwing in some funny little story
Everything. He kept me enthralled with his tales.
His agent in the breakthrough section of his career.
I would recommend it to other people
I don't usually write reviews, but this so called book was so hopeless I had to express my frustration of having used a book credit on it, what a waste, I usually enjoy Michael McInyre's stand up, and he should keep to that forum
"OMG!!! I cried and laughed"
Absolutely inspiring uplifting
Michael of course. But I think his wife is the good woman behind the big man
I have not listened before. I have seen him and his work always makes me reach for my inhaler.
My life, divorce death and marrying the love of my life.
I have watched Michael on television and I found his performance a health risk but I keep coming back. I have had to take my inhaler because my laughing and total inability to remember to breatheHE should come with a health warning!!!!!
Takes you from a young age to selling mobile phones to playing the O2 which is apt considering he sold their phones once
I was at times laughing out loud and I did not want the book to end it was a pure joy
"A read to make you giggle out loud"
Michaels honesty about how bad he was when he started in showbiz,
Would have been nice but it was so well narrated that it didn't matter
I love Michael mc I find him very funny and could imagine him sitting next to me telling the story which made me smile and laugh out load. For fans of MM well worth a go
"Funny & Interesting"
Probably not as I don't listen to/read books more than once.
I have read My Booky Wook by Russell Brand - which is similar in the fact it's a comedian but not just about the funny stuff.
His explanations of his mums friendship with Kenny Everett, school sports day and buying drugs at college are hilarious! It's the excitement in his voice that makes it even funnier!
His relationship with his dad.
Brilliant book - well worth a listen!
"Better than expected"
Yes! We listened to this book as a family. One of our children adores Michael McIntyre and watches him on YouTube all the time, so I thought this would make a welcome entertainment option for the whole family whilst on holiday. Apart from a few intakes of breath when the more adult sides of life were discussed (our youngest is 11) it was quite simply one of my genius mother moments! Michael's candour was unepected and this combined with his ability to tell a rockingly good story quite simply made this book a winner!
Michael himself. The book was fascinating, humorous and entertaining in equal measures. At one point my husband laughed so hard whilst driving, we nearly veered off the road!
Michael's grandmother - hilarious and so very well portrayed. The boys in particular were charmed with her accent and kept trying to recreate it. Highly entertaining with some very poignant moments towards the end.
No definitely not. The beauty for us as a family was in listening to a section, chuckling and talking about it, retelling some of the 'funnies' and most of all, looking forward to the next installment.
The only sad part was when it ended - we all felt a bit bereft. He needs to write another one!
"Really did make me laugh"
Funny, interesting, real
The grandmother she had all the best lines
One I wouldn't know his story which I feel makes him quite funny, plus shows how difficult it is to become a comedian and full of his day to day comical views
Laughter all the way but dud make u feel for him in the beginning
If you like his style of stand up you will love this book. The fact he voices it makes I that much more funny
"Good story - let down by poor sound"
An engaging story, but probably less so if you do not know north london. However this was let down badly by poor sound levels. Michael's voice level changes often and I had to keep adjusting the volume in the car.I would recomend as long as you are near the volume knob.
Quite an intersting life, his struggles to get in to comedy. He is a natural story teller. My 3 Performance rating is due to the sound.
Be prepared to adjust the volume every now and again.
"Heartwarming and so so funny"
This book is in my top five. It's the only funny one and the only biography but I could listen to it over and over again - and have.
Michael is the star of his own show and I pity those who just bought the book and read it themselves.
Michael's grandmother is wickedly portrayed and totally convincing, darrrrling. :D
