Jo Brand is one of Britain's funniest and best-loved comediennes. With a sharp eye for the absurd and in her own unique voice she tells her story for the first time. What possessed her to become a professional comedian in the cut-throat world of stand-up comedy after ten years as a psychiatric nurse? How did she deal with late night drunken audiences? Raised in middle class comfort, she left home in her teens to live with someone entirely inappropriate. Her parents were aghast at her behaviour and attempted to rein in her excesses, finally giving up when she demonstrated that she was not headed for the life of a nun. From her early years growing up in a small south coast town with two brothers who toughened her up, to emerging on stage as 'The Sea Monster', Jo Brand tells it like it is with wit, candour and a wonderful sense that life can be ridiculous but there's always a funny side.

I really enjoyed this book. Whilst reading it, I could almost imagine her voice telling me the tales in person...her sarcasm & wit came through. This is a frank, honest autobiography which will appeal to most readers. It was easy reading & humourous. In this book, she only shares her life experiences prior to making it as a comedian...so I expect later in the future a follow-up will be written.

Although the book started well with all the usual early family history, I quickly realised that given Jo Brand's age, I was rapidly nearing the end with three quarters of the book read and her only being in her early 20's. The last 20 pages or so of the book only took the reader up to about 1990. It ended suddenly with the reader wondering where the last 20 years of her life had disappeared to. It felt like she got bored and went off to do something much more interesting.
