Publisher's Summary

Jack and Michael Whitehall perform their laugh-out-loud autobiography Him & Me as a unique dual-voiced comedy audiobook, filled with ad-libs, asides, and comic dialogue to create a uniquely funny listen.

Jack and Michael open up the rich and plentiful family lore archives on topics such as Jack’s nanny’s enormous feet, Michael’s lifetime touchline ban from Jack’s prep-school and the Whitehall collection of downright weird and eccentric relatives.

With family photographs and sketches by Jack himself, the result is a hugely entertaining insight into a hilarious and sometimes bumpy journey of self-discovery and into the unique relationship between a father and a son. The devotees that adore and worship Jack are already embracing his lovably grumpy father, who is rather enjoying his newfound fame.

Watch out, fans of Reeves & Mortimer, Walliams & Lucas, Morecambe & Wise, there’s a new comedy duo in town. This edition features an extra final chapter, recorded exclusively for Audible listeners.

    "The most fun you can have with your clothes on!"
    Would you listen to Him & Me again? Why?

    I have already started to re-listen, as I missed some bits as I was laughing so much.


    What about Jack Whitehall and Michael Whitehall ’s performance did you like?

    I have no doubt that this would be a great book to read, but it is best enjoyed as an audiobook. The real enjoyment comes from the many asides, sighs, occasional spats but overall deep affection between the father and son.


    Any additional comments?

    I very rarely 'review' books on any sites, but this one is kept me amused for several hours and I received several strange looks as I sat at the traffic lights laughing so hard I was almost crying.

    The best book I have listened to this year.

    "What a unique and refreshing change !"

    At last, a book that is written and narrated with humour and intelligence. The interplay between Jack and his father is entertaining largely because they are equally matched. Such a refreshing idea to have a memoir told from the perspectives of two generations. I already knew of Jack's comedic abilities from his TV appearances but knew nothing about father, Michael Whitehall - who is a wonderful character with a very droll delivery and a wealth of ancedotes. I hope they will consider writing another book together - and might include chapters from Jack's mother and siblings and even some of the celebrities that Micheal has managed over the years. Nigel Havers.... what a additional treat that would be !

    "MARMITE"
    Any additional comments?

    Whilst "Him & Me" is an entertaining "listen", one soon grows weary of Mr. Whitehall senior. He is one of those men who mistakes sarcasm for intelligence and rudeness for wit and his biting nastiness about almost everyone (nannies, neighbours, relatives) begins to grate after a while. I can only imagine what he must be like to live with (Mrs. Whitehall deserves a medal). Add to this his blatant need to convince the listener of how "correct" he is (every anecdote is liberally soaked with "brand names": his shirts, suits, shoes, wines, china, etc.) and he manages to make Michael Winner appear understated. Normally, one would have no cause to refer to this particular aspect, but Jack has made being seen as upmarket his trademark and, as we are bludgeoned with yet another version of "Yes, we really are THAT posh!", it does bear mentioning (they live in Putney, for goodness sake - Putney.) I think it would be fair to say that, after a few hours in their company, it becomes clear that the Whitehalls are to "posh-ness" what Paul Potts is to opera - a relatively good imitation, but far from the real deal. That said, it is obvious that Jack adores his father and their on-air spats (though a tad contrived) are clearly based on a solid relationship between the two men. “Him & Me” is an enjoyable way to pass a few hours and Jack’s light humour is easy enough to digest. His father, however, may prove to be more of an acquired taste.

    "Him & Me + You & Them = LOL Listen!"

    Very cleverly done, with Father & Son not only reading as the authors but quipping with each other throughout - you feel like you're sitting in their Putney living room sharing family stories after dinner! Jack's school tales are in places nothing short of hilarious - fake tan incident being my favourite rewound and replayed several times! Dad is old school and there is something wonderful about the way this collides and with his son's world yet love between them shines through - without, as you would expect, there ever being a 'soppy' moment. Attempts to remedy political incorrectness of varying degrees from both only adds to the humour and serve to demonstrate a secure father & son relationship. Very, very funny, warm and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended!

    "You wouldn't expect anything less"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Him & Me to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version of the book, but I just don't think you'd get the same from the printed version that you do from the audiobook. Their personalities really come across in the audiobook and despite the fact it was probably rehearsed, it feels quite ad libbed in places.

    Oh, and there's a bonus bit in the audiobook you don't get in the printed version!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Him & Me?

    The nakedness


    What about Jack Whitehall and Michael Whitehall ’s performance did you like?

    If you didn't know that they were related (well duh!) then you can so tell just from the performance.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I particularly liked the way Michael pretended to know nothing about modern terminology or technology so that it would wind up Jack.


    Any additional comments?

    Despite Michael's working as an agent for many celebs over the years, I'd never heard of him until this book. Both Jack and Michael were brilliant throughout.

    "A surprise... a real surprise"
    Any additional comments?

    I can't stand Jack Whitehall (I know, bit harsh) but he isnt the most likeable or humorous of comedians whenever i've seen him on television, cheap shock jokes and dubious references to how posh he is, which often don't sound as self deprecating as he thinks they do.

    So, why bother wasting my monthly credit on an audiobook by one of my least favourite comedians?... limited airport wi-fi... being in costa coffee before a relatively short haul flight to the continent, i had little time or bandwidth for my usual scour through the audible library to find the perfect literary accompaniment to my mood and this was first in my recommendations, probably due to the reasonably unlikeable life story of David Mitchell and the rambling sixth form rhetoric which was Marcus Brigstoke's "God Collar" both which I slogged through several weeks earlier (before using the returns policy on the latter as even on a second attempt couldnt reach the mid chapters)... maybe a weird sleep deprived logic crossed my mind when I saw "Him and Me"... maybe if comedians i like make such awful books, maybe one I detest will write Shakespeare, stranger things have happened. Whatever my reasoning time was against me, so click, download, gulp.

    In the nick of time finished by the time id joined the KLM boarding queue, filled with a sense of worry that i was going to be stuck in cattle class for three hours with nothing but a terrible audiobook and a rescued half read copy of the Daily Mail found under a seat.

    KLM to those familiar with flying are one of the sensible airlines that allow you to keep your electronic devices switched on during take off and landing, so the moment i took my seat I was able to engage my headphones and enter Jack Whitehalls life... with a mental snort of derision at what this young posh boy could have ever done to warrant an autobiography at the age of 23 or 24 or whatever phase of late childhood he was when he wrote this, I began.

    Wait a minute... who's this old guy?? turns out (if id read the synopsis) this was a joint biography with his Dad, a very old, very posh and very drunk man, the sort who you hear pop up on Radio 4 when you accidentally tune in to an unfamiliar program and this concept was very intriguing, id never heard a biography from two contrasting perspectives before and the fact this was performed by the authors so well (i'd hesitate to say "read" as im very confident that a lot of this version deviates from the written version) the whole story felt like a natural conversation from two people who descend into light arguments, trying to tell their personal memories of events in Jacks life, flinging their own often deeply unconvincing verisimilitude at one another to form a competitive volley to try and convince the listener that their version of events is closer to the truth...Michael (Jacks Dad) especially dredging up embarrassing little details to the chagrin of an often mortified Jack to "win" their version of events in the way only a Dad can and this is where the book became quite simply the funniest book ive ever listened to... sitting on a plane biting my lip to stop myself erupting like a lunatic as the two of them tried to piece together Jacks life so far. I won't go into details, because it's the little things combined with the quality of the performance that make this so good.

    Don't expect any shocking revelations, just appreciate the two authors perspectives on their time together from mundane to quirky and really find a shambolic but painfully funny memoir... i really hope Jack and Michael start to do more projects together from the back of this book, as a comedian, Jack really needs a straight man who knows him better than he knows himself to showcase that he is a genuinely likeable, brilliantly witty chap! I spent my trip abroad looking for any opportunity to sneak off for a walk to keep listening to this fantastic book and finished it well before my return flight (silly me)

    This audio book has funny story's from both jack and his father Michael. There is lovely banter between the two of them and even though they clearly irritate each other they obviously care for one another to. Also be prepared for rather posh voices #tallyho
