Product Description

Review

‘Extremely funny … told with heart-warming honesty’ Mail on Sunday

‘Unlikely – and very moving – life story… Extraordinary.’ Red Magazine

‘Satisfying, enjoyable, funny in moments, sad in the others. The funniest and most moving book I’ve read this year and I plan to give it to everyone I know this Christmas’
James Mullinger, GQ

About the Author

John Bishop was born in Liverpool and grew up in Winsford and Runcorn, Cheshire.

In 2006, approaching his 40th birthday, John left his job to pursue a career in comedy. Within three years he was playing to sell-out arenas and had released the fastest-selling debut DVD in history. Now a household name and one of the biggest stars in comedy, John has just completed his third nationwide arena tour.

John lives with his wife and three sons in Cheshire and his hobbies include his dog Bilko and supporting Liverpool, but not always in that order.

Of course the essence of an autobiography is to make your readers like you, although some authors have achieved the opposite. So the key is to be nice but not too nice. That's why John Bishop's book is a good un. He always comes over as an amiable chap anyway, the kind of guy you would like to share a few beers with. But he's not perfect as he continually tells us.

This book makes you like him even more. The guy's not perfect - he admits he hasn't been the greatest husband or father. But that adds to the honest approach which is appreciated. Here is a man who knows that he has been lucky in life, but that luck is based on ability and talent.

What shines through is his pride in being a Scouser and the pride in what he does. Today's celebrities seem to fall into one of two camps - eithe empty vacuous celebrities who are famous for just being who they are or genuine talents who go that extra mile. With his endurance and charity work Bishop falls firmly into the latter category.

This was an excellent and easy to read book that I was sorry to finish. And I still like the guy despite his radio show comments about Norwich and Norfolk.

This is the first book, in quite a while, that I haven't wanted to put down until it was finished. It made me laugh, smile and even choke back some tears. What an interesting varied life John has led and he delivers his story in such a down-to-earth way, you can't help but think you were actually there at some stage!

Really enjoyed reading this book. Husband is now reading it. Written well, slightly humourous but a great insight in to this comedian's life. Pleasure to read, no nonsense and whereas some autobiographies leave you with a negative feeling about the celebrity, John Bishop comes across as a really decent fella with experiences that many peope go through.

John Bishop is one of the best nation stand up comedians. It is interesting to read a book about his journey of becoming a comedian. I found the book interesting and witty. John comes across as a genuine nice and down to earth person. He is a northern lad hailing from Liverpool. The book reflects on his childhood, education, career and of course as a comedian. There are interesting stories which kept me glued for long periods. He vividly describe the events. I like the way he opens up to readers. There are plenty of parts where I laughed out loud. Writing an autobiography is about sharing memories, talking about ups and downs and being honest. John does a wonderful job of this. I throughly enjoyed the read and would recommend the read for anyone is a fan of the comedian and appreciates a quality autobiography.
