Publisher's Summary

'In these memoirs I bounce all about British TV with such success that I wind up in radio. I will also be filling a few holes that I left in the previous decades. For example, I managed to forget in book one that I had been shot. Twice.'

Danny Baker's first volume of autobiography, Going to Sea in a Sieve, was a Sunday Times best seller, acclaimed for its nonstop humour and anecdotal flourish. It told the exploits of Danny's extraordinary childhood and the wild living of his teenage years. Now he is 25, and it is 1982, and he embarks on an accidental and anxiety-induced career in television - going off alarming. With rollicking good stories from what he describes as 'a frankly crackpot life', Danny continues this stupendous chronicle with irrepressible verve and hilarity. Dozens of TV shows - many of them lousy - give up their backstage stories, and Danny's extraordinary family, particularly his father, Spud, react to the ride throughout. Game shows, talk shows, adverts and TFI Friday are but a few of the unplanned pit stops along the way. Not forgetting the tale of Twizzle: the dog who hanged himself, died, then came back to life again.... Clearly, this will be no ordinary show business stroll down memory lane.

Read by Danny Baker.

    "Effortlessly entertaining"

    Another bright & breezy entry of Danny’s memoirs. Really pleasurable to listen to. In case this hasn’t been mentioned already there is an edit missed at 7.09.41.

    "Worth the wait"

    Not sure why this was not released with the book, but it is worth the wait. Danny Baker is a great storyteller on the page and spoken, with a way of looking at things side-on, and if you like Danny you will love and laugh out loud at this tale of his misadventures and life.
