For the first time, comedian Jack Dee reveals the highs and lows of his early life and disastrous day jobs.You don't just wake up jaundiced and bitter; it's taken Jack years of dedication and commitment to brew his unique cocktail of disillusionment and bile. What turned this once optimistic young man into a grumpy middle-aged git? Was it working in an artificial-leg factory? Or delivering incontinence pads for the NHS? Or was it the time when he was shunned by his peers for daring to thrash a one-armed man at tennis?In this hilariously frank account of his life, Jack finally answers the question, 'So how did you get started in comedy then?' Along the way, he shares his blatantly unreasonable views on everything from personal trainers to boutique hotels, from the overrated moon landing to 'people who hold their cutlery the wrong way'.Once you've listened to this book, you'll never think of Jack Dee as a smiling, happy-go-lucky, friendly face again.More
"Another comic with a darker edge is Jack Dee. Thanks for Nothing is the only celebrity autobiography currently worth listening to, streets ahead of the rest.
He is the perfect reader of his own self-deprecating, deadpan style but his story, of hard work and soul-searching, is gentler and less cynical than you might guess: you end up seriously liking the man."
