“I’ve decided to open with ‘Hello’, and then, even if you don’t care for anything that comes after that, at least you’ll say I was well mannered”
The hilarious, heart-warming and tear-jerking memoir from one of Britain’s best-loved comedians and actors, Matt Lucas
This is the story of little me, from pudgy, awkward child to pudgy, slightly less awkward adult – via school musicals, adolescent angst, stand-up, Shooting Stars, Little Britain, Doctor Who, love, loss, wigs and giant pink babygros. And, in case your attention span is as short as mine, it comes in a handy A to Z format. So B is for Baldy! (yes, people did shout this at me in the playground), G is for Gay (because I’m an actual real life gay) and I is for Idiot (I was born a berk. I probably even stubbed my toe on the way out).
It will warm your heart, make you snort out loud in public and there’s even a catchy song in the middle. What I’m saying is, please buy this book. It is VERY good. I know I’m biased because I wrote it but it is.
“To be truly unique in this world is almost impossible to achieve; this book is about someone who achieved it. Raw, honest, funny and moving”
