5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 20 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life and Laughing: My Story (Hardcover)
I have never laughed out loud at a book so much or enjoyed one as much as I have this book (a real page turner :P). The only problem with this book is that it made me receive some very strange looks from people (OK so laughing in the middle of the college library....not a good idea....same goes with the bus).
I don't normally read auto-biographies or memoirs (to give them their `sexier' name) but I couldn't put this one down. I have loved Michael McIntyre ever since seeing his first performance at the Royal Variety (on T.V. obviously) and he had me roaring with laughter. I have since watched him on shows such as Mock the Week and Would I lie to you as well as buying both his DVDs and I really do wish to go see him live, he came to where I am last year but no one I knew wanted to go or wouldn't commit so I missed out... but I have made up my mind that if he comes back I am going whether it's on my own or not I don't care.
What's so great about this book is that not only is it funny from page one but you can imagine Michael saying it, it's his personality down on the page.
It's hard to believe that it took him a while to gain such popularity and played to audiences that didn't find his stuff funny, but that doesn't really matter now. He's a top comedian and now an amazing author too, his Mac and view did the job...or maybe it was the purple room and non-swivel chair but meh. A definite read for a fan or just anyone that wants a laugh.
