Publisher's Summary

Remember that time an Essex Council odd job man rode the social media boom to become a minor internet superstar? No? Well, Kunt does, because it was him! In this audiobook version of i, Kunt, Kunt from Kunt and the Gang recounts in his own words the unique story of how he went from bedroom studio bod to award-winning comedy phenomenon, set against the backdrop of the good old days of social media, before the thought police took it over.

Between 2003 and 2016 Kunt and the Gang got over three million YouTube views, despite having their channel shut down; scored two of the least appropriately titled top 75 UK hit singles of all time; were ostracized by the Edinburgh comedy community over a misjudged advertising campaign involving stickers of crudely drawn penises; and organised the world's first ever dirty protest where literally tens of people tweeted jpegs of their faecal excrement to evil entertainment bigwig Simon Cowell. Oh, and got banned from Butlins. 

i, Kunt is an extraordinary tale about trying to stay true to your principles whilst dressed head to toe in hi vis, pretending to cry and masturbate.

Charming, honest and entertaining.

So let me first start off by saying, I'll have to refer to him as KATG through this entire review, else I'll get flagged. This was a very relatable and sporadic collection of tales paving a coarse timeline of KATG's run. Starting with the humble beginnings of grade school, working through being a mischievous teen, and on to the struggles of being an adult that is revered by some and loathed by others. He covers a lot of the inspirations and shaping of his hit songs, as well as events that shaped him into the top of his game (a minor internet hit singer). The writing style is very ease to take in, and never loses your interest. On the surface KATG is edgy, offensive and controversial. Though through all his stories you learn that's he's a kindhearted and passionate guy who just found his niche in the obscene. I'd highly recommend to anyone who's not offended easily, that understand that profanity is just words, and the twisted side of humanity is best dealt with using humor.

Best thing on audible.

This is on a par with the Alan Partridge books as the best book on Audible. Laugh out loud funny road tales from Britain's best loved, and Yewtree's most feared Minor Internet celebrity.

amazing

I highly recommend this to anyone who does or doesn't like kunt. the story is inspiring on a level that means you can make something out of anything so if you are a crude cunt you can become minorly known and if your a sensitive cunt you can also have minorly piss taken out of you.

More charming than the title would suggest

Growing up in the same part of the world at the same time (even seeing some of his earlier bands) always drew me to him, and this reading is a delight, although probably a bit "too alternative" for many, in case the title didn't give that away.

Tales of the road, growing up in the pre-internet, post Depeche Mode Basildon through to a fairly unique level of fame and success never forgetting the tone of material that got him there or the audience it would attract makes this unmissable.

Equally charming and obscene

Absolutely Hilarious

I’d never heard of this Kunt before but the book title stood out and i took a punt. Glad I did as it was brilliant. I’ll now go and listen to his albums.

The most I've ever laughed whilst on my phone.

This book is so funny. 10 hours of pure comedy gold. The personal highlight for me was the section about sticking d*icks on posters in Edinburgh. The joke about Russel Kanes poster looking like it had a d*ick photo shopped out of it had me laughing like an idiot in public. The delivery is perfect. Its hard to tell how much is real or made up but I fear a lot more of this is true than you'd expect. I had vaguely heard of Kunt from him playing Download Festival years ago but I've never seen him play live. I downloaded the book after watching his videos on you tube after the recent chart success. The only shame about this book is that it wasn't written after they actually got to number 1 for the Jubilee. Fingers crossed he's already writing the follow up. I genuinely loved this book. I really hope Kunt gets the exposure as a comedian he deserves. His material is edgy to say the least but its just fun and to be honest he could make a living just telling these little stories so maybe will see more of him under a new guise. If this was the last thing he made then he could retire happy though. Its hard to get better than this.

Just a load of ramblings

A load of ramblings from an inadequate man with an unhealthy fascination for deviant sex, bodily functions and peadophiles. If your the type of person who laughs at swear words because they make you feel naughty when you say them then you may like this . Someone said this was on par with Alan partridge but it’s no where near.

Kunting brilliant

A brilliant listen/read. Having seen him a few times, it's nice to know the story behind the songs and performances.

delightful

In this book Kunt talks about the ups and downs (mostly downs) of touring, gigging and making music, on a budget, in the most hilarious way. Ive seen Kunt live a few times and this is everything you want it to be, 10/10 would recommend to any wrongen

Great book.

Like listening to an old mate who always makes you laugh with plenty of rude and juvenile carrying on.

Excellent

A brilliant story about the rise and plateau of the man called Kunt. It's also the book that inspired the album Punk in Your Face by the wonderful band The Kunts, which features some of the entertaining blokes mentioned in stories from this book
