Michael McIntyre has become Britain’s biggest comedy star. His debut stand-up DVD was the fastest selling of all time, only to be eclipsed by his second that sold over 1.4 million copies and was the 2009 Christmas number one. He hosts his own BAFTA nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-up in 2009 following his record breaking fifty-four date Arena tour.
But how did he get there?
Michael reveals all in his remarkably honest and hilarious autobiography Life and Laughing. His showbiz roots, his appalling attempts to attract the opposite sex, his fish-out-of-water move from public to state school and his astonishing journey from selling just one ticket at the Edinburgh Festival to selling half a million tickets on his last tour. Michael’s story is riveting, poignant, romantic and above all very, very funny.

I kid you not when I say, I bought this book for my son who loves him along with the DVD, my husband who doesn't read anything except a newspaper and only then looks at the pictures! read this book from cover to cover and all I saw when he was reading it were smiles, frowns and then hiccups of laughter. So I just had to read it. You just have to read it!
I'm a big McIntyre fan he's probably my favorite stand up alongside gervais
It just wasn't has funny has I thought it would be,obviously its about his life from childhood which was interesting but went on a bit to long for me, it gets a lot better when he grows up
On the whole a good read but never 5/5
