As far back as he can remember James Corden has only ever wanted to be in one place: in front of you, doing something to make you laugh, cry, shout, or giggle uncontrollably. At the age of 4, he grandstanded throughout his baby sister's christening, standing on a chair in front of the whole congregation, pulling faces and cracking everyone up. Despite himself, the vicar was impressed. And from then on he couldn't get enough of the spotlight, even when it always seemed to avoid him. Throughout his teens, he and his Dad trudged up and down towards London, getting closer and closer to landing a gig, only to be told 'No' at the last stage. But he never gave up and soon found his whole life turned upside down and inside out by his experience as one Alan Bennett's History Boys. From that moment forth, he's never looked back.

May I Have Your Attention Please? is the warm, cheeky, surprisingly honest and hilarious story of one of our most popular comedy talents. From his antics as one of the founding players of his high-school's first ever rugby team to gaining recognition in the West End, to nationwide fame as the loveably loud Smithy in the award-winning Gavin and Stacey, this is a tenderly told story of what it's like to try, try and try again and - happily - get there in the end.

Listener Opinions

    " Having always been a fan of Janes Corden I was really looking forward to reading this. Light, humble in places and funny, it has everything a great autobiography needs. Would have liked to have read more about his high profile personal life (e.g Sheridan Smith) but thats just because I'm nosey :-P highly recommend to anyone who is also a fan. "

    " Not as funny as I thought it would be - but he comes across as a nice chap - and I knew nothing about all his theatre work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 2/7/2014

    " An entertaining easy read. Like all talented people, he makes what he does sound so easy that you think anyone could do it. He talks about writing Gavin and Stacy with Ruth Jones and it sounds like they just had such a laugh. Reading this made me want to watch all the DVDs again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ceri | 1/19/2014

    " Slow start, very interesting though. It would appear James Corden is not what he says on the tin! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pearl | 1/17/2014

    " Well impressed. I took a while to get into but well worth a read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle Duncan | 12/26/2013

    " This is a sincere account of Corden's rise to fame in British comedy. Corden's voice is prevalent throughout the autobiography, and truly endearing. A fantastically hilarious read for Gavin and Stacey fans! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter Wanless | 12/1/2013

    " Clearly rushed out when he had a couple of days to spare. An easy read and pretty much what you'd expect. More fun watching back to back episodes of A League of Their Own to be honest! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody Mccall | 11/18/2013

    " For a relatively young man, he has had quite a life ... so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liberty | 8/20/2013

    " Good book, he literally know EVERYONE! A very informative, but funny look into his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise | 7/23/2013

    " Enjoyed reading about him growing up as I was in the Salvation Army too. Enjoyed the book but I like this sort of thing. It may not be to everyone's taste "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Morgan | 6/27/2013

    " Sometimes it's disappointing to learn too much about somebody - although with that said I didn't put it down throughout the day, and it was admirably honest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 3/20/2013

    " Honest and down to earth. No frills just tells it how it is. Interesting to know how in life you just need that one lucky break "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie Masq | 1/22/2013

    " Slightly humorous but truthful. started well but began to lose enthusiasm towards the end. Areas of his life detailed, especially his struggle to succeed and the negative grip of being famous taking hold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 9/8/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book, though I would've liked more about James' earlier life. I felt like a lot of the book just listed the jobs he's done. Nonetheless, I like this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Blue | 8/10/2012

    " Love James corden and thoroughly enjoyed his light, fluffy bio "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dua'a Behbehani | 8/9/2012

    " I loved this book so much! It was funny, sweet and actually eye-opening! Even though this was written to show you how he grew up and rose to stardom, it also shows you gow he grew up mentally. I loved it! "

    " interesting and quite funny in parts i read this book as i am a huge fan of gavin and stacey "
