Anybody that could offer his guests a cheese sandwich when appearing on TV's Come Dine with Me is clearly an unconventional sort of person, but Rowland Rivron did and it soon becomes evident from reading this book that Rowland Rivron is a VERY unconventional person. As a comedian his humour can be anarchistic and he has led a similarly anarchistic life. He is a man that enjoys a drink or four and he loves to party, all the time causing havoc on the way.
His career has never been conventional either. On leaving school he became a drummer, earning good money playing in the West End, but after associating with the alternative comedy crowd he drifted into humour, an area that obviously suited his off-beat personality down to the ground.
Rowland Rivron has never been my cup of tea whenever he has appeared on TV so I was not expecting much from his autobiography but I ended up really enjoying this book. Some of the things he does are tasteless or just plain crazy - but they are also very funny. Rivron writes very well and he comes across as being very likeable, if unpredictable, person.
