Needs A Sequel
on 24 February 2015
Sorry Lee, your a very funny guy on stage and I am a huge fan, but this book is a bit of a let down. The book goes through the story of his child hood living on a Council Estate with his family and going around the country to watch his dad perform stand up.
Lee name drops a few famous people he has met and talk about meeting his wife and living in Scarbrough for a while. The book is also interjected with a few funny lines and his comedic style which is why he has became the biggest selling comedian of all time.
However I know what you are wondering, but Stu if you are such a huge fan then why are you giving this book 3 stars and this is why if my next part of the review - The book ends at him being 16 or 17.
Yes that is right, in here you will not read any of his how he got famous tales or how he got noticed and how he got the jokes he tells. The book ends in his teenage years and rather sudden.
The childhood stuff just didn't grab me - I want his fame walk of life and stories on how it feels to sweat like hell and have 100,0000 fans all facing him. The book ends in 1985 and I just hope there I a sequel in the works.
Overall I did enjoy it but just not as much as I expected too.
