Summary

Famed for his gentle innocence and brilliant observational wit, comedian Alan Carr describes his childhood growing up in a football-mad family in Northampton and his rise to become one of Britain's best-loved comedians. "Puberty had been unkind. Whereas it had come in the night and left the other boys with chiselled, stubbly chins and deep masculine voices, I'd been left with a huge pair of knockers and the voice of a pensioner."
-Alan Carr
Alan Carr grew up in one of the most boring towns in England: Northampton, a place known for making shoes. It was also famous for its football club, Northampton Town FC. Alan's dad as manager of the club was a local hero - a dream come true for most lads, but not Alan. Alan wore glasses and had man boobs at 14. He did not like P.E.
In his very first book, Alan tells his life story ("oh and what a life") with his unique twist of natural, observational humour - "I'm not saying I'm a fantasist but there have been times when things that I've seen on television when I was younger have tended to seep into my subconscious and blended into my own life. I remember telling my mum about the time I stopped that woman from having a diamond encrusted necklace stolen and she'd say 'No Alan, that was Poirot.'"
With his tongue-in-cheek, end of pier humour that has made him famous, Alan describes an ordinary life in bursts of technicolour. His journey from awkward schoolboy hiding his man-boobs on the pitch, drinking tea with the dinner ladies and working in a call centre, to becoming one of our best-loved comedians, likened to the great Frankie Howerd, will make his audiobook a guaranteed tickler, with a laugh-out-loud gag at every turn.

Laugh out loud

I loved this book, The way Alan tells his story had me laugh out loud in a shops and on the bus several times at one point I had to stop listening all together because people started to look concerned for me when I had tears falling down my cheeks whilst trying to muffle my chuckles. Wish it was longer! Loved it!
