Ever since being brought up by The Beatles, Frankie Boyle has been a tremendous liar. Join him on his adventures with his chum Clangy The Brass Boy and laugh as he doesn't accidentally kill a student nurse when a party gets out of hand. I don't think anyone can have written an autobiography without at some point thinking "Why would anyone want to know this shit?" I've always read them thinking "I don't want to know where Steve Tyler grew up, just tell me how many groupies he f**ked!"' So begins Frankie's outrageous, laugh-out loud, cynical rant on life as he knows it. From growing up in Pollockshaws, Glasgow ('it was an aching cement void, a slap in the face to Childhood, and for the family it was a step up'), to his rampant teenage sex drive ('in those days if you glimpsed a nipple on T.V. it was like porn Christmas'), and first job working in a mental hospital ('where most evenings were spent persuading an old man in his pants not to eat a family sized block of cheese'), nothing is out of bounds. Outspoken, outrageous and brilliantly inappropriate, Frankie Boyle, the dark heart of Mock the Week, says the unsayable as only he can.From the TV programmes he would like to see made ('Celebrities On Acid On Ice: just like Celebrity Dancing On Ice, but with an opening sequence where Graham Norton hoses the celebrities down with liquid LSD'), to his native Scotland and the Mayor of London ('voting for Boris Johnson wasn't that different to voting for a Labrador wearing a Wonder Woman costume'), nothing and no one is safe from Frankie's fearless, sharp-tongued assault. Sharply observed and full of taboo-busting, we-really-shouldn't-be-laughing-at-this humour, My Shit Life So Far shows why Frankie Boyle really is the blackest man in show business.

This is a great read if you like Frankie Boyle's type of humour.
Some really good bits that are laugh out loud at times.
Could have left out the script he did once as he must have been on drugs when he did it. Thats the only poor bit in the book.

 In tears!

I picked this book up twice by accident in two different shops,and each time within seconds i was reduced to a gibbering wreck of laughter! Just pick any page and i guarantee you'll instantly be in tears laughing at the anecdotes. The one about Mrs Tait is a masterpiece of comedy writing. A must read!

Since we will be missing Frankie on MTW this is a perfect substitute, well written and hilarious, right from the word go.

 Reasonable but not brilliant!

I had high hopes for this book, now I feel slightly let down. In my opinion this book is a couple of laugh out loud moments in a sea of dullness. Still worth a read though.
