Editorial Reviews

Born into show business, controversial British media star Michael Grade has led a fascinating life, working for everyone from the Mirror, to the BBC, then Channel 4. For such a maverick, telling stories is easy, as he proves in It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time, his self-narrated autobiography. It will come as no surprise to listeners familiar with Grade's work that his performance is witty and candid, describing in the most charming way his meteoric and sometimes scandalous rise through a very public career.

Publisher's Summary

There is nothing, absolutely nothing that would ever make Alonzo Bodden, winner of NBC's Last Comic Standing, give up comedy. "That's the drug," he says. "When they laugh, it's like I'm a jazz musician, and they hear it, and they get it. It's the power to take the crowd wherever I want them to go. I love it when they laugh, especially when they relate through laughter. It's a beautiful thing. It also means I'm going to get paid, which is nice."
