Life and Laughing: My Story

Life And Laughing: My Story - Michael  McIntyre I do not usually read autobiographies, I think i've read 3 at most and this is usually because they do not interest me and because most of the autobiographies that come out now are written by people of little talent who in some instances surprise me that they could actually write a book. They are often far too young to be telling "their story" and do not have any interesting journey to tell, Rooney, Gerrard, any footballer or newly found 'celebrity'.

However this one is different, very different and I like what Michael has done with it. From starting off with needing to set up his office to write the book to his young life, his parents, his quest for his love, and his attempts to make it as a comedian.

I would not have even read this book but for the Mrs getting it for her birthday, reading it, and me hearing the frequent and loud outbreaks of laughter that occurred when she read it. So in the end, I had to read it, and I am very glad that I did.

Very rarely do I read a book that makes me laugh out loud and is so very funny, but Michael McIntyre's autobiography is a wonderful mixture of laughs, stories, and the journey he undertook. I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of his stand-up.
