Michael mcintyre live and laughing book
LIFE-AND-LAUGHING-BOOK – Michael McIntyreAs it is with his Middle Britain-friendly stand-up, it is with his memoirs, an entertaining series of anecdotes from his life moulded into a surprisingly warm narrative, full of wittily-remembered incidents. On the surface of it, his life might appear charmed. He came from a very wealthy family, educated at a leading private school called Arnold House and with his father a scriptwriter for Kenny Everett, he appeared to have had an easy way in to the comedy career he wanted. And his rise in the world has been fast and seemingly unstoppable, seemingly coming from nowhere to the very top echelon of British stand-up in a couple of short years. But there is more to his life than this, of course, and despite its generally light tone, the book does contain insight into the course of events that made McIntyre who he is today.

Great book. They seem sort of background shadowy figures, just shovelling around a bit of routine admin? I read a chapter of it when I was waiting at the airport to go home and I was quietly chuckling to myself at his words. Some people read audiobooks very well.
The humour works much more sublimely - whether or not the tales are entirely true - and reading about his struggles are made extremely funny. This book is a hilarious exeption. Life and Laughing Fantastic Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting.
Why do the asterisks in that sentence make it okay. Make that my innate dislike of modern autobiographies by micntyre. Barboza Which scene was your favorite.
The book had me in stitches and the pictures were a particular favourite. Such an interesting story. Remember Me. He comes from a very eccentric family, more than likely. Maybe, and that in itself makes entertaining reading.

Listening to Michael tell his story made me both laugh out loud and feel extremely sorrowful for some things he had to go through growing up. And it's actually quite fascinating to see how quickly he became so incredibly successful. Best joke - while shopping in Ikea and looking at a bed, the sales assistant asks himself and his wife if they'd like to buy it - "i'll need to sleep on it. Doesn't sound very appealing but once you begin and read the funny fine writing style and how he jokes about his own life you become immediately hooked to the book.
His decision to become a stand-up inevitably led to renewed poverty, as he trudged around the circuit and lost small fortunes at the Edinburgh Fringe. The observational comedy laughijg that McIntyre has meant that virtually every page had funny-isms dropped onto it; he was writing about his past, I'm writing my review on an old MacBook Pro c. Well read by Michael with many funny stories. The book managed to miichael both funny and heart-warming in parts and if you are a fan of his then you are sure to enjoy reading "Life and Laughing".
