Book Description

1 July 2013
Cake baker, cat lover, agony aunt - she's one of the country's brightest new comedy talents. But who is the real Sarah Millican? For the first time, journalist Tina Campanella gives you the full story of the British Comedy Award winner's astonishing rise to fame...After he husband unexpectedly left her in 2004, Sarah Millican moved back in with her parents and found solace in a series of writing workshops. And it wasn't long before she made the move from writing to performing, drawing on the pain of her recent break-up. She had never even been inside a comedy club when she first stepped onto a stage, microphone in hand. But her emotionally revealing stand-up instantly won the hearts of her audience. Sarah's debut solo show at the famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival won her the 2008.if comedy Best Newcomer Award causing a stir among the seasoned reviewers and judges. With appearances on 8 out of 10 Cats, QI, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Mock The Week quickly cementing her status as a household name, the country watched - and laughed - as her star continued to rise. And she was rewarded with her own show - The Sarah Millican Television Programme - which combines telly inspired stand-up and unique interviews with her celeb heroes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written 27 Aug 2013
By Han
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was an OK holiday read, although very poorly written. There are quite a few quotes, anecdotes and bits of information repeated throughout the book, and several typos. Does no-one proof-read any more? It gave me the impression that the book had been hurriedly cobbled together and rushed to print whilst Sarah Millican is very popular. There are also several sections that don't refer to the woman herself at all, and describe the ins and outs of the comedy industry. If you have read other boigraphies/autobiographies of comedians, then these sections will be boring and patronising.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was full of cliches 25 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It was full of cliches, I wasn't thrilled with it. The writer kept going over the same ground. Five out of ten.

Go get it, this is a great story of Sarah as she goes through life from where her husband left to where she stands now. It is so funny and so sad but a wonderful read and one not to be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brings you right up to date 18 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Must admit to looking forward to reading this book. A little disappointed though as it also had a lot of stories about other comedians at times almost whole chapters. If your going to write about someone surely you should stick to that person. Yes mention others but to much about other comedians careers. Best to make up your own mind if you want to read it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring list of tv appearances 26 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like Sarah Millican's humour but if she has sanctioned this book, she's maybe a bit of a money grabber rather than the warm woman I've previously thought her to be. The book give endless lists of shows where Sarah made a guest appearance and who appeared alongside her, usually ending in "Sarah held her own/stole the show". The book is also padded out by extensive quotations from reviews. Endlessly repeating what was said in a newspaper does not make a biography. It does make a very easy way for a journalist sitting in front of a computer screen to cut and paste to fill a book. Sarah, if you have any conscience, distance yourself from this lazy piece. Only for fans who feel they must collect everything.
