As well as giving a specific account of every single time he's scored some smack, this disgusting memoir also details:

the singular, pitbull-infested charm of the FRP ('Flat Roofed Pub')

the curious French habit of injecting everyone in the arse rather than the arm

why, by the time he got to Cambridge, he really, really needed a drink

the pain of being denied a childhood birthday party at McDonalds

the satisfaction of writing jokes about suicide

how doing quite a lot of walking around London helps with his sciatica

trying to pretend he isn't a total ∗∗∗∗ at Robert Webb's wedding

that he has fallen in love at LOT, but rarely done anything about it

why it would be worse to bump into Michael Palin than Hitler on holiday

that he's not David Mitchell the novelist. Despite what David Miliband might think

About the Author

David Mitchell is a comedian, actor and writer. He stars in Peep Show, writes for the Observer, co-hosts 10 O'Clock Live, has appeared in every TV or radio panel show except Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Quote Unquote and A League Of Their Own and has been in two films neither of which made a profit. He is married, childless and the polysyllabic member of the double-act 'Mitchell and Webb'. Soon he will do more.


Awesome read very funny and straight down the line humour.


Would definitely be reading again soon as I am sure that I will pick up on any other humour.

Hooked until the last page.. A great read


I loved the way this book is written , as you read through his past you are also going on a journey with him through London - like your new friends and just getting to know each other whilst going for a walk. I love his humour and style of writing , and honesty . Would recommend !

`One of the best celebrity memoirs of last year...his outsider geek personality translates just as well on the page as it does on TV.' Metro

`It livened up about half way through with the appearance of me. But enough of David's life. The book is wonderful from beginning to end.' Robert Webb

'David Mitchell is an extremely funny man on screen, in person, in print and very probably underwater.' Sam Bain, co-writer of Peep Show

`He can write' Evening Standard

`Fluent, discursive, intelligent.' Evening Standard

`If you like Mitchell on television, you will like him in this book.' Shortlist
