Comedian Jack Dee's hilarious account of how he became quite such a miserable git and a stand up comedian.

'A brilliant book. So funny. It's my bible' Paul O'Grady

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.

    Nice account of Jack's early life on the road to fame and fortune. sure to please fans of Mr Dee, of which I am one, and of this genre generally of which I am one also. Interesting but not fascinating, funny but not hilarious, good but not great. You get the idea...
  • Next.

    A fine book, full of Mr Dee's acerbic wit. It takes a while to tune your inner voice into that of Jack but once you do, the journey becomes a delight. The final chapter leaves you at a point, where all you want to do is race forward. I await Jack's next book with money in my pocket, with which to purchase it.
  • One of a kind

    I went to school with Jack - so was shipping myself that my 'debauched' early life would be revealed to all? Thankfully It seems my sad secrets are still secret, so I gladly give this book 6 out or 5...
