Customer Review

on 6 December 2012
My favourite Simon Day character was Peter Paul Stufanhaus on 'Das Crazy Clip Show' - a viewers' home video show which ran for a while on the Paramount Comedy channel. Peter Paul (ie Simon) would provide a hilarious, apparently ad-libbed commentary (in a somewhat dodgy Dutch accent) to the videos - much like 'You've Been Framed' only funnier (sorry Harry!). Anyway, my only disappointment in this book was that 'Das Crazy Clip Show' doesn't get a mention.

Otherwise it's an incredible read - how Simon has managed to achieve the personal and professional success he has is astonishing. He details in this book his painful descent into an adult life plagued by gambling and drug problems (and the petty crime needed to support it) with brutal honesty. Yet in the face of such adversity he still somehow managed, through his own considerable talents and with a few lucky breaks, to achieve a successful career in comedy and a happy, settled family life to boot.

I think you should read it!
