Product Description

Review

Disgracefully funny and rather touching (R4 Midweek)

The rapport between them is palpable and priceless . . . crackles with their back-and-forth dynamic . . . an embarrassment of biographical riches (Daily Telegraph) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Jack Whitehall is a comedian, actor and television presenter. Following his first solo show at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, he has subsequently won numerous comedy awards, most recently King of Comedy, voted for by the public at both the 2012 and 2013 British Comedy Awards. A regular guest on panel shows, including Have I Got News For You and A League of Their Own, he is currently starring in two hit TV series: Bad Education for the BBC, which he also wrote, and the award-winning Channel 4 series Fresh Meat in which he plays JP. Jack's new national arena tour Jack Whitehall Gets Around played to sell-out audiences across the country and will be available on DVD this Autumn.

Michael Whitehall as a theatrical agent has been involved in the careers of many eminent actors, including Colin Firth, Richard Griffiths, Angela Thorne, Michael Fassbender, Daniel Day Lewis, Nigel Havers and Judi Dench. He is also a television and theatre producer. His memoir Shark Infested Waters was published in 2007 and is currently being developed for television. He appeared with Jack at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Backchat, which was subsequently commissioned by BBC TV as a six-part series and screened in the Autumn of 2013. A second series is due for transmission in the Summer of 2014. He recently fulfilled his lifelong ambition of appearing in Dictionary Corner on Countdown.

This book was absolutely fantastic and a really great mood booster. Jack and Michael Whitehall alternate to narrate chapters about their lives together and the other will annotate with what they thought happened. This led to more hilarity and enjoyment from this book. If you are a fan of either Jack or Michael Whitehall then read this and if you are not then still give it a read for the pure enjoyment factor.

I really enjoyed this book. Well written, and a very entertaining read. A brilliant idea by Jack and his dad. I would loved to have grown up in their house!

I laughed out loud on many occasions. In fact I woke my husband shaking the bed with uncontrollable giggling. A really hilarious and brilliantly written book, full of eccentric types - and the wonderfully irascible Michael. The affection between father and son shone throughout the book, often touchingly so. Jack Whitehall's illustrations are an added bonus. It is unfair that someone has so many talents! The only complaint I have is with the Kindle edition where the footnotes are in very small and faint print which were almost impossible to read and I was unable to enlarge them.

This is one of the funniest books I have read in a long time, and laughed out loud! Jack and Michael clearly have a very close relationship and are even funnier live. I highly recommend this book and have bought two more copies for my nieces for Christmas! Definitely buy!

I read Him and Me in two days and am happy to say that I found it impossible to put down for even a second. I implore you to ignore any reviews that say this book is 'dull' and 'very poor' because it most certainly isn't!! The book has a very unique premise as it recalls some very funny stories and memories from the Whitehall family saga from both Jack and Michael's point of view, from family holidays and Christmas time, to political differences to sexual attitudes between children and parents- and is a very refreshing and endearing look at the loving relationship between father and son. It is also without a doubt, a very funny book with lots of 'laugh out loud' moments (and some hilarious illustrations from Jack!) and if you want a book to read when you are feeling a bit low, I guarantee this will not disappoint, especially if you like Jack Whitehall. A wonderfully
Warm and witty delight.

A very entertaining memoir. Jack and Michael alternate writing chapters about incidents during Jack's childhood. When one is writing, the other comments on anecdotes - this cements the way they are working together in this book.
