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.

    "Fantastic - Would recommend to all!"
    What made the experience of listening to Life and Laughing the most enjoyable?

    I absolutely loved this audiobook, everything that Michael talks about feels so relatable and whether you're a big fan of his or not, you can't help but respect him after listening to his story. There was a lot that made me laugh and feel hopeful to, the way he performs his story is full of life.

    "A thoroughly enjoyable listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Life and Laughing to be better than the print version?

    I much prefer listening to autobiographies that are narrated by the author. It's like having them chat to you plus you can multi task. For me, autobiographical audio books are preferable to a printed version.


    What about Michael McIntyre’s performance did you like?

    I loved the whole audio book from start to finish, all of it. The vocabulary he used, his voice, all the little details and anecdotes, his mimicking of voices and accents and I especially liked the conversations over the telephone. Michael read the audio book perfectly.


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

    The book made me stay up way too late, laugh out loud in the street and cry on a bus.


    Any additional comments?

    Fabulous.

    "OMG I NEVER STOPPED LAUGHING. BRILLIANT!"

    What an awesome book. I didn't listen to this in the car as suggested my Michael but whilst running on my treadmill at the gym. Everyone thought I was deranged laughing whilst running. I really didn't want the book to end. I didn't buy the book to read as the thought of Michael reading it to me in his wonderful comedy style was just amazing. Thank You Michael for making those kilometres on he treadmill seem like nothing. If you don't listen to this book the world will be a slightly duller place. Paula x

    Really enjoyed this book. I've been a fan of Michael McIntyre for a while and this is everything I like about him - funny, witty and really well performed by the man himself. Great listen!
