Very funny book.
Discover Michael McIntyre's hilarious life-story in Life and Laughing.
Michael McIntyre is Britain's biggest comedy star. He has released two record-breaking DVDs, Live and Laughing and Hello Wembley; hosts his own BAFTA-nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow; and has picked up British Comedy Awards for Best Live Stand-Up and Best Male TV Comic. Last year he became the youngest ever host of the Royal Variety Performance, and now in 2011 he takes the hot seat as a judge in the hit ITV show Britain's Got Talent.
How did he get there? Michael reveals all in his remarkably honest and hilarious 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. Michael McIntyre's Life and Laughing is riveting, poignant, romantic and above all very, very funny.
Michael McIntyre was born in South London in 1976 to parents from the world of showbiz. His Hungarian mother was a dancer and his Canadian father co-wrote The Kenny Everett Television Show. Now he is a stand-up comedian who in 2009 sold out a record six nights at Wembley Arena and four nights at London's O2. Michael lives in North London with his wife Kitty and their sons Lucas and Oscar. This is his first book.

Really loved reading this book from beginning to end and almost had me in tears in places or laughing out loud in public! I read this book mostly when I went out for my weekly solo coffees and so enjoyed the company of this book when I was out on my own. Will miss it now that I've read it. Hard to know what to read next as feel anything else might be a let down......or in other words this book would be a hard act to follow if you get my drift! Complimentary to his comedy, but unless you know his comedy this book might not be appreciated as much.
Can't wait to see him live in Melbourne in a few months! McIntyre isn't interested in spouting his success. In fact, only the last 10-20 pages are devoted to his life as a success. The rest detail his sometime painful childhood and his (very) slow ascent to stardom - his failures, setbacks and losses. A compelling read.
