It starts with a bang - the entry for January 1st describes how Amanda Holden spends her Christmas Day - and the humour never lets up for the following 364 days. It would be impossible to attempt to describe what happens during Harry's year but even if I were to mention that amongst the events that he writes about are his appearance on the TV reality gameshow `I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of My Tree If I Don't Like It', in which he has to live for two weeks up a walnut tree with Sylvester Stallone's mum and the conversation of a Bexhill theatre into a dog food factory you would still not believe the vast amount of inspired daftness that is contained in the books 468 pages.
I dare say that it wouldn't appeal to everybody but those who enjoy Harry Hill's brand of humour should not miss this book, because I guarantee they will love it.
Whether you could consume 20 in one sitting and still be convinced of their marvellous healing properties would be another thing altogether, though.
This book consists of one layer of zaniness, followed by a generous wadge of wackiness, oversized ladles of spontaneous silliness and many toppings of surreal clownery. It's all a bit much if your humour receptors have been surviving on much lower-calorie, fibrous stuff.
I can hear Harry's voice reel off the random silliness contained in this book - which helps somewhat - but I still don't connect with the humour in the same way I have done in the past when I can actually watch and listen to it - it just doesn't really lend itself to the written word.
If I had the patience, I would limit myself to reading one day's diary entry every day, as there seems to be a lot of random tomfoolery here that just blends into itself if I read more than a bit at a time.
Recommended to Hill connoisseurs only - if you've ever felt like he's on a stronger dosage than you are, I'd avoid. Sorry Harry - I still love the stand-up xxx
Look elsewhere. There were some really
amusing moments, especially the continuing
story of Harry's grandmother who bought a holiday
home in Iraq, but a lot is average.
If you are an HH fan, buy it for the collection.
tv burp and youve been framed
i think hes very funny
this book is a diary of one hectic year of his so called showbiz life and the
goings on in bexhill,where harry lives with his mother,occasional fiancee filipino lay dee and a dog who works at gatwick airport
all this plus a detailed account of all the floppy-collared loons dinners
a very funny,stupid and nonsensical book
and those who say otherwise....FIGHT
