5.0 out of 5 stars Watch out indeed!!!!, 12 April 2011
This review is from: Watch Out!: An Autobiography (Hardcover)
Jeremy Beadle was and is a show business legend; for almost a century this practical joker was at the fore front of British Television, cutting edge journalism and hardcore horse on woman pornography.

This fine autobiography traces Beadle's desperate struggle for fame, often to be over shadowed by his twin brother; plate balancer and ferret breeder, Simon 'Corn beef face' Weston. It was only after a 1 night stand with TV's Floella Benjamin that Beadle first got bit by the media bug (quite literally; Floella's clunge was infested with crabs). With Floella's insider knowledge, Beadle quickly became known to producers and canteen staff at many minor local radio stations and started work at BBC Pinxton as a researcher for broadcastings titans Bob Carolgees, Anne Diamond and Richard Madeley.

By the early 1980's Beadle was very much in demand as a panelist on shows such as 'You Bet', 'Crosswits' and 'Win, Lose or Draw', whilst maintaining a career as Sous-Chef at the Marco Pierre-White patronised Little Chef, Croydon. His trademark pixie hand and comedy teeth were soon to find their own showcase on `Game For A Laugh', `You've Been Framed' and `Beadles About' (the latter being the favourite show of the much missed Queen Mother, who told the Radio Times in an interview just before she died; "that honkie mother f**ker is the funniest c**t on the box!)

Before his shock death in 2008 of rabies, Beadle was in line for a Knighthood for several bulk donations of his underwear to the Spastic community combined with his journalistic coverage of the shooting of Jill Dando, the Soham murders and the closure of 7 Kwik Saves in the Aberystwyth area. Now in 2011, statues have been commissioned by the government of inspirational figures of the modern age to stand in Trafalgar Square; unsurprisingly Beadle will join Gandhi, Einstein and Shakespeare. Designed by Tracey Emin and the blind lass from the Lionel Richie `Hello' video, the figures will be revealed by Beadle's widower, Beverley Allitt on the anniversary of his death.

This book comes highly recommended by The BBC's Arts and Culture show and is now among the all time best selling autobiographies which include memoirs by Mr Motivator, Gretchen `Ethel from Eastenders' Franklin and Shabba Ranks. A must read. 5 out 5 stars.

While everybody has a right to freedom of speech and to air their own points of view, some people like Dan†J Hardy take advantage of this, maybe they get some sort of perverse kick out of †trivialising†other people's lives while they attempt to insult others with their sick and scandalous comments, as in the case of this reviewer, here we have a talentless person who is trying to justify their own pathetic existence by hiding behind a desk with a poisoned pen to hand, †if there is ever a case study of (little man syndrome) look no further than to read this persons reviews.
