For the first time, Dom Joly reveals how he murdered his Armenian nanny before his second birthday, how as a student he inadvertently gave Kurt Cobain the inspiration for 'Smells like Teen Spirit', how as a producer for ITN he mistook John Major for a large lizard, and how after being raped by a TV weathergirl the scandal was hushed up and Trigger Happy TV was born.
Dom Joly promises many other sensational revelations involving fellow celebrities including Vanessa Feltz, Peter Mandelson and Uday Hussein and many others yet to be identified.

Review by TrgLlyLibrarian
I don't think Dom Joly and I are on the same wavelength when it comes to written humor. I find him very funny on TV and YouTube, but somehow a lot of the crazy embellishments in this story ended up seeming rather depressing to me instead of hilarious. It works better in audiovisual format. I should mention nevertheless that it takes a TON of creativity to write a book like this! Kudos for that!
