Michael McIntyre is a much-loved stand-up comedian, with sell-out international tours and the hugely popular television series Michael McIntyre’s Big Show and The Wheel. But the road to stardom was paved with near-disasters, as he hilariously recounts in his autobiography. Picking up where his first book, Life and Laughing, ends, Michael has had his first breakthrough, his 2006 appearance on The Royal Variety Performance. He was horribly in debt, with a young baby, living in a flat so tiny the kitchen was in the coat cupboard. And as well-received as his performance had been, the job offers weren’t exactly rolling in. Would he ever make his dreams a reality?
Michael’s adventures will have you laughing out loud as he describes his rise, fall and rise again. He might be selling out arena tours but his wife Kitty and two sons keep his feet firmly on the ground. Honest and revealing, and full of his unique observational humour, A Funny Life is a book his millions of fans will love.
