He has admitted it is not all true,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life and Laughing: My Story (Hardcover)
This was the first autobiography that anyone has ever bought me. However, I saw an interview where he said that it was quite embellished to make it more interesting so that really spoilt it for me. I would have prefer it to be in the fiction section then I would not have been so disappointed. I really like his live shows and sense of humour, I just did not like this autobiography and did not finish it before it went to the charity shop.
