Just Incredibly Good!

If you could sum up Here Comes the Clown in three words, what would they be?

Witty. Honest. Fascinating.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Dom, but also Sam's character. I felt for Stacey, Dom's wife.


Have you listened to any of Dom Joly’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I purchased "Look At Me, Look At Me" in fact I pre-ordered it.
I hated it and then took an instant dislike to the author, solely because I hadn't the intelligence to realise it was a spoof/satirical book.
I was wrong, Dom Joly is an extraordinarily clever chap, I grossly misunderstood the quirky humour in the book. I shall now revisit it with an open mind,


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Here Comes The Clown made me laugh, but I also empathised wiith the author.
This is simply a superb book,and beautifully narrated.
It's actually a brilliant story and I'd highly recommend it.
Really interesting info contained therein, who knew Dom schooled with Osama Bin Laden? Who knew such skullduggery existed in the world of show business?


Any additional comments?

FTR I've now publicly apologised to Dom Joly via Twitter, because I was wrong to make an assumption based on one book. It turns out he's actually very nice and has a great sense of fun, he's also a really good author.Buy this book, you won't be disappointed. 10/10
