Avis de l'équipe

The best-selling audiobook Life and Laughing: My Story is written and narrated by one of Britain’s most loved comedians, Michael McIntyre, who gives an honest and hilarious recount of his incredible life. His memoir tells the tale of his life from childhood endeavors, his entry into the comedy scene and his brilliant rise to the top.

His autobiography is laugh-out-loud, joyous listening. Available now from Audible.

Description

The riveting, poignant and remarkably honest biography from Britain's biggest comedy star, Michael McIntyre, brought to you by Penguin.

His debut stand-up DVD, Live & Laughing, was the fastest selling of all time.

Now he hosts his own BAFTA nominated BBC1 series, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, and has won the British Comedy Award for Best Live Stand-up.

But how did he get there?

In his compelling autobiography, Michael McIntyre reveals all.

With deeply personal and captivating narration, Michael unveils his incredible journey: from his showbiz roots, to his appalling attempts to attract the opposite sex, to going from selling just one ticket at the Edinburgh Festival to half a million at his last tour.

Written and narrated by Michael himself, Life and Laughing is the hilarious performance and life story from one of the country's most loved comics.

Entertaining and engaging

I expected an interesting story with some funny bits. I think this is better than reading the book yourself as you get to listen to Micheal himself. While the book covers some sad and hard times in his life it is not depressing but very funny. He is also able to convey his feelings and emotions for both the sad and happy times to give you an idea of how he felt and what he was going through. The book had me in tears frequently, some tears off sadness but mostly tears of laughter. Fortunately I was home alone listening so no problem for the times when I just couldn't hold the laughter in.
He also gives the rest of us an idea of how hard it is to become a success in comedy, you don't just walk into a club and start telling jokes and bingo your famous. I've often thought that people in showbiz must all have big egos just to get up on stage and assume people want to see / hear them. I've never considered that they want to make us happy by performing or that their disapointment at lack of success might not be purely financially motivated.
I hope Micheal has many more years of entertaining ahead of him and that he has plans for further books.

hilarious

He is a very funny man and if you have seen him on tv and like him then you will love his autobiography. His narration is brilliant.

Some laughs and some tears, a good listen

I loved this audiobook. Have become a fan of Michael McIntyres comedy and found it a really interesting story of how he got to where he is today. It is not a book of all laughs, I had tears at times, but was an inspirational story by someone who has faced a lot to get his success. Read brilliantly by Michael himself. Would recommend.

BEST Narration of any audiobook...ever!

Would you listen to Life and Laughing again? Why?

Absolutely would listen to this again. The author/narrator has such a wonderful outlook on life, he can find humor even in hard times.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Life and Laughing?

I love how McIntyre opens the first few chapters by chiding the listener for being "too lazy" to read the book for themselves; there are other comments that he makes while reading that seem to be spontaneous as well. The delivery is so natural, so fresh and authentic.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to almost half in one sitting, then the rest the following day.

Sensational

Love this man. He is the only one since Robin Williams that can make me laugh til I cry. Michael’s is a wonderful story of love and the undying will to succeed. Going to New York mid February. Had I known that Michael was playing Radio City Music Hall the first of February I would have booked an earlier trip so that I could attend his show. Good luck.
