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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I wasn't impressed with this book, it is really only the last couple of chapters when he starts talking about his stand up career. I was hoping for more about that less about before. Not as funny as I hoped either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Simon | 12/30/2013

    " Always liked him as a comic. I like him more after reading this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lera | 12/14/2013

    " Jack Dee, a life to date. Fine, and funny, but not exactly essential reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 11/30/2013

    " Chuckleworthy. If you like "Lead Balloon" you'll like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rik | 11/15/2013

    " very funny, as expected, with what seemed like some genuinely honest and revealing stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 10/17/2013

    " Jack Dee's humour is evident throughout. This is an entertaining read as we find out what led him into a career in comedy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 7/11/2013

    " This follows Jack Dee's path into comedy. It doesn't follow that much of his comedy work- so maybe there is a volume 2 on the way. Another biography picked up in the Pound shop. I found it quite an interesting read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri Moore | 6/23/2013

    " Very honest autobiography, easy to read and very entertaining "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 6/18/2013

    " It isn't really insightful, it's just a list of complaints that don't really make a difference. I know that his stand up style is grumpy, but I was hoping for more from his book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian T | 5/16/2013

    " Lent to me but within the first couple of dozen pages hilarious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Duff | 12/24/2012

    " mildly amusing but more raise a smile than laugh out loud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neil | 5/20/2012

    " Though it was pretty entertaining I was disappointed as it felt like I was reading exactly what he would stay on stage, a script of a tour. Put it down after 3 chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise | 4/20/2012

    " Hilarious, kept me entertained. Would recommend to everyone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa Bennett | 12/24/2011

    " Surprisingly boring. A few good bits, bit overly I thought the book would be better written and a lot funnier than that. I'm glad I didn't buy it now! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 11/15/2011

    " I enjoyed this, a light, easy read. A few laugh out loud moments and lots of funny anecdotes from his childhood. "

    " An amazing book. I am a huge fan of Jack Dee so knew I would love it anyway. It is not like most autobiographies as it only discusses life before fame and how he got in comedy. It is the only book that has made me laugh out loud, would recommend to everyone! "
