STANDUPS TAKE NOTE,
This review is from: Life and Laughing: My Story (Hardcover)
McIntyre is generally regarded by many newbie Standups as a bit of a commercial Clown. However Newbies take note,this autobiography is a Gift of knowledge from a man who had the discipline to stay the course when I am quite sure many of todays
instant fame bunnies would have fallen at the wayside.In this book he leaves a breadcrumb trail to any aspiring comic of just how much graft and personal loss it takes just to get noticed and in turn delievers alongside the likes of Logan Murray,one of the best books on Standup that is out there. As to the audio book, McIntyre could have just taken the money and delievered a monatone read instead with brillant gusto he delievers a hilarious voiceover, peppered with adlibs. To the point you actually at times feel your having a one to one with a very funny and charming friend.....I raise my glass to you Sir.

Your audio book review was spot on! He placed his all to share a worthwhile story.

Just finished the audio book, love the way he does all the voices and accents! Giggled so much as the account of his wife going into labour and the subsequent desperate dash to the hospital that I woke my OH up who had been sleeping peacefully beside me!
