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.

    It's excellent.

    "Interesting and amusing"

    I enjoyed the book. Not laugh out loud all the way through but certainly enough to keep you engaged. Worth a listen.

    "A very funny man"

    This is a real funny story well told and narrated by Michael himself. It made me laugh out loud on quite a few occasions which can be very embarrassing whilst in a public place wearing headphones.:)

    Story
    "entertaining and interesting."

    Very interesting to hear about the struggles Michael McIntyre went through despite his initially privileged background. funnily enough though, his reading of his own story can be flat and monotone in places.

    "A Very Cool Life Story"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook, it met and exceeded any expectations I had.

    Laughter I guess was the expectation, and there is certainly plenty of that, but what exceeded the laughter, is the happiness I had for the author.

    Michael McIntyre is without doubt a very funny and extremely talented artist, but behind that is a life story that is worth hearing. Not simply because of the success McIntyre has experienced, and yes that is the "cool" part, but also because it is has a familiarity to it and is something of an inspiration.

    It's a cool life story and while it's not mine or that of my neighbours, I'm really happy for persons that it is.

    Way to go Michael.

    "You don't have to be a fan!"

    I'm not the biggest Michael McIntyre fan but trusted a friends recommendation and so glad I did! Funny and intetesting in that perfect and natural way of talking to a mate over a cup of tea, this book is a great listen from start to finish. A different style to some of his more over the top performances it was a really entertaining and easy listen.

    Just be careful listening on public transport as I laughed so much I got a few funny looks off strangers!

    "Laugh out loud funny"

    I'm a huge Michael McIntyre fan and this book didn't disappoint ... I would find myself driving the long way home just to hear another chapter. I laughed out loud to and from work everyday for week while I listened to it in the car ... Loved it
