Product Description

Product Description

Comedian Tony Martin's genius for unearthing the eccentric in seemingly ordinary people is laid bare in this hilarious new collection of tales from his tumultuous life outside show business.

Spanning four decades, two nations, and a number of embarrassing medical procedures and ancient family disputes, Martin's stories are light on the epic, and unsparing in the detail. Be amused and appalled as Tony discovers his parents are censoring bare breasts in the National Geographic, attempts to start a band with no musical skill whatsoever and returns to his hometown to discover his grandfather is not the man he thought he was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Cracker 11 Oct 2012

He's done it again!!! Tony Martin has made me look like a fool on the train, once again. Reading his book sends me into fits of laughter in public. This insight of Tony's life, takes the same path as his first book Lolly Scramble, tells of amazing events that Tony has experienced. Truly one for any fan of his work. Stage, screen, radio, television.

Another great book by the multi talented Tony Martin. I am waiting for his next book which he tongue in cheek said that it will be about MMM and his experiences with his show 'Get This' called "Wankers Away".
Tony has many fans and this book doesn't dissapoint.

Having read all Tony's books including the downloaded one I am now sadly waiting on the next. No other comedy writer comes close to the piss-funny brillent writing of this Late show legend!
