In this hilariously frank account of his life, Jack Dee finally reveals what turned a once optimistic young man into this grumpy middle-aged git.
It's a journey that takes him from a first gig as a ventriloquist's dummy, to working in an artificial leg factory and delivering incontinence pads for the NHS, before he finally ends up on stage at the Comedy Store.
Along the way, Jack shares his laugh-out-loud views on everything from the 'overrated moon landing' to boutique hotels, personal trainers and 'people who hold their cutlery the wrong way'.
Outrageous, absurd, and full of surprises, this is Jack Dee at his funniest.

Every British comedian has to write a book. This one just not that funny - and Jack Dee's personality by itself is not that interesting.Couldn't finish this book.

A must read for Jack Dee fans - the dedication says it all "For me without which this wouldn't have been possible"! A fascinating insight into Jack Dee's early life & career. Originally read a Kobo preview then borrowed from the library.
