Life and Laughing: My Story – Michael McIntyre


Michael McIntyre is Britain’s biggest comedy star. He has released two record-breaking DVDs, Live and Laughing and Hello Wembly; hosts his own BAFTA-nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow; and has picked up British Comedy Awards for Best Live Stand-Up and Best Male TV Comic. Last year he became the youngest ever host of the Royal Variety Performance, and now in 2011 he takes the hot seat as a judge in the hit ITV show Britain’s Got Talent.

Michael reveals all in his remarkably honest and hilarious autobiography, Life & 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.

My Review:

Michael took us on a very honest journey, sharing some of his most precious memories. 

I never thought an autobiography could make me cry but it left me in tears by the swimming pool whilst i was on holiday. I did attract some odd glances but I couldn’t care less.

Thank you so much Michael for sharing your life with us. I genuinely had no idea about your beginning in the industry and my eyes have been opened to how great your success really is!

You were before, and still are, my favourite comedian!!

I would recommend this book whole heatedly but as you are aware, I’m a little bias.
