Very enjoyable. Just like having the real thing wittering on but in front of your nose. Made my bronchitis worse spluttering at the gags and preposterous humour. ( )

Lee tells the story of how he wants to be one of the "special people" - a comedian, and hi journey to get there.
Lee writes just like he talks on tv, it's Luke he's there telling it to you.
The footnotes age very amusing.
There's nothing really about Lee's life - and he says that at the beginning - it's his story of becoming a stand up comedian and writing 'not going out'.
plenty of laughs! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0593069420, Hardcover)

A brilliant, heartfelt and hilarious insight into the life of one of our most popular comedians.
 
Lee Mack is not just another comedian with a book. He is one of the UK's most recognisable and celebrated stand-ups. His energy, finely crafted one-liners, and lightning quick ad-libs are second to none, and his solo tours sell out wherever he plays.
 
Autumn 2006 saw the successful launch of Lee's own sitcom Not Going Out on BBC 1 with the first series winning both the Break-Through Award at the RTS Awards and the Gold Rose D'or award for Best Sitcom. This hugely popular show is now on its fifth series with a 6th series scheduled for filming this autumn. It's regularly watched by over 4 million viewers.
 
So what's the story? Lee's early life after leaving school involved time working in a bingo hall and as a stableboy. After working at the stable for three days he asked if he could try and ride a horse; the trainer, Ginger McCain, agreed and the first horse he ever rode was Red Rum. Lee went on to have various other jobs (including a Bluecoat at Pontins and a dog whisperer), and did his first open mike slot in 1994. So far so good. But as anyone who's seen Lee's stand-up will attest, Lee is a natural story teller.
 
He is widely loved and his book will be an absolute corker. And you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be at the very top of Xmas present wishlists up and down the country this autumn.

As anyone who has seen Lee Mack's stand-up will attest, he is a natural story teller, and his memoirs are sure to have you laughing out loud. Bursting with original stories, hilarious anecdotes and unbelievably ridiculous episodes, this is Lee Mack at his very best.… (more)
