Publisher's Summary

In Toast on Toast - part memoir, part "how to act" manual - Steven Toast draws on his vast and varied experiences, providing the reader with an invaluable insight into his journey from school plays to RADA and from "It's a Right Royal Knockout" to the Colony Club.

Along the way he reveals the secrets of his success. He discloses how to brush up on and expand your technical and vocal skills, how to nail a professional voiceover, and how to deal with difficult work experience staff in a recording studio. He also reveals the dangers of typecasting, describes the often ruthless struggle for 'top billing', and shares many awesome nuggets of advice.

The end result is a book that will inspire and educate anyone who wants to tread the floorboards. It will also inform (and entertain) anybody who simply wants to discover what a jobbing actor's life is actually like.

Glorious performance from Matt Ber-Ray.

You have to be a fan of course, but if hours of listening to Toast's timbre is your idea of heaven then welcome to paradise. Worth the cash for the role call of ludicrously great character names alone.

Helpless with laughter!

Matt Berry as the irrepressible actor Steven Toast brings his shockingly candid and "autobiography" to life. Berry's performance is brilliantly sustained and hysterically funny. Toast is a wondrous creation. This audiobook is s must for all fans of the CH4 TV series. For large parts of the book I was literally helpless with laughter. I had to switch it off while driving for fear of crashing. Whilst listening with headphones on the train I got funny looks from fellow passengers as tears of laughter rolled down my face. Yes, it really was that funny! I loved it!

The second best moustache in showbusiness.

Advice and anecdotes from mediocre actor and self-proclaimed 'star of stage and screen' Steven Toast. Toast himself brings this ghostwritten tripe to life with his thankfully unique vocal style.

He's no Ray Purchase, is he?

He really knows his Acting onions

Would you listen to Toast on Toast again? Why?

Absolutely. It's essential listening for the unemployed actor and or the full time employee stuck on a zero hours contract. It made my spirit sore and my sides soar....no hold on

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them....Fancy Alexander sounds robust....and Rebecca Banana sounds hot also

Any additional comments?

Buy this and listen to it.

Finished in one sitting

This is the first time I'd ever heard of Steven Toast but loved Matt in The IT Crowd so thought I'd give this a go as it was on the daily deal. I was not disappointed!

This book is very, very funny and I'll definitely listen to it again.

I just wish it was longer!

Great Performace

Toast reminds me of a drunk Patrick Stewart. Toast can probably handle his liquer, Stewart however can get a little lairy after a whiskey. At our last meeting I found him jumping around a hotel lobby wearing in nothing but a vest and pair of loose fitting Y fronts. Living up to his romany heritage Stewart was looking for a bare knuckle fight with anybody who was willing to meet his challenge, "Make it f**king so" he kept saying. "Fight me, make it f**king so". However he soon tired and fell asleep in a feotal position on a small chaise. The staff recommended leaving him to sleep it off, they'd become accustomed to it. Toast is a strong man who we can all admire. He knows what he wants, and sometimes gets it. Great story, highly recommended, excellently delivered.

Matt Berry is a pleasure to listen to.

Over the top in places. Toast gives away more than he thinks about his own rumbling psyche as he gives an hilarious potted history of his rise to fame.

Toast on Toast is an absolutely sublime

It is a absolutely sublime telling of Steven Toast's tall tales from Matt Barry's beloved character. Everything from his sheer pomposity to his ridiculous and wild claims are at the very least amusing and more often than not hilarious. on numerous occasions Toast says things so wildly ludicrous that both took me aback and had me laughing heartily in public.

Consider in that Toast is a fictional character much of what he describes from his life seems to ring with some truth of what being an actor is like, especially one such as Toast.

Absolutely hilarious!

Would you consider the audio edition of Toast on Toast to be better than the print version?

Yes, definitely! I tried to read the print edition, but it falls flat without the voice of Matt Berry as Steven Toast. He could even make the phone book sound funny!

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

I had to listen to this book twice in a row, as I laughed so much the first time round, I missed a lot of the jokes. If you enjoy the TV show 'Toast of London' you will love this audiobook.

Genius in all aspects.

This made me laugh for almost four hours straight. To not hear Steven Toast lend his voice to the words 'oooterus' and 'ooorovision' would be a travesty.
Matt Berry is a absolute marvel. His best character yet.

This Toast is Burnt~

All memorable. It's a right royal knockout rundown the standout for me. Thoroughly appreciated the pronunciation of Orstralia. Loved it, struggled to finish. I didn't want it to end. Succulent narration. A bit rude. Have a listen!
