Publisher's Summary

Michael McIntyre has become Britain’s biggest comedy star. His debut stand-up DVD, Live & Laughing, was the fastest selling of all time, only to be eclipsed by his second, Hello Wembley, which sold over 1.4 million copies and was the 2009 Christmas number one. He hosts his own BAFTA nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-up in 2009 following his record breaking 54-date Arena tour.

But how did he get there? Michael reveals all and gives a hilarious performance in this audio edition of his remarkably honest autobiography. His showbiz roots, his appalling attempts to attract the opposite sex, his fish-out-of-water move from public to state school, and his astonishing journey from selling just one ticket at the Edinburgh Festival to selling half a million tickets on his last tour - all are revealed. Michael’s story is riveting, poignant, romantic, and above all, very, very funny.

    "disappointed"

    Perhaps I listen to a different book to the rest of the reviewers as I found it bland and not a scatch on Alan Carr's. I used to like Michael until I listened to his book which I found a turn off.

    "The best Audio book so far"

    For a week I had nothing but sweat laughter on my way daily commutate from Reading to the City of London....

    I also felt some parts were most reflective, being a Autobiography, that would be expected.. but it's done in comedy. Two import life lessons come to surface... the mass struggle before success and the importance of money!

    Thank you Michael.

    "Nice start to MM's Writing career!"

    Very 'Listenable'. He injects his whole persona into the book and makes it well worth waiting for.

    "A fantastic read!"

    Downloaded this based on the other reviews here, and let's just say I wasn't dissappointed! This is a cracking read (or should I say listen!). Funny from start to finish but touching and moving too at parts. Can honestly say I was sad when it came to an end. Nice one Michael! Can't recommend this enough!

    "Hard to listen to on a bus!"

    I laughed out loud so often while listening to Michael McIntyre narrate his autobiography that I am sure people on the buses I travelled on each morning thought I had gone mad. The anecdotes are genuinely funny, but there are some poignant passages too.

    "Hysterical!"

    This is fabulous! I was recommending it to my son before I got to the end of Chapter 3 and I think having it read by MM adds a certain je ne sais pas, to continue his English/French phrases!

    Unlike some autobiographies that feel as though they are a pick n choose of Politically Correct or suitably shocking events or opportunities to re-write history, in this book you really feel like you're hearing about a real life which is equally entertaining and frank warts and all (of all and sundry!!)

    I particularly enjoyed the Hungarian Grandmother and her 'heddeck'!!!!
