The brilliantly funny and inimitable Alan Carr tells his life story in his own words, from growing up in a football-mad family in Northampton to his rise to become one of Britain's best-loved comedians. 'Puberty had been unkind. Whereas it had come in the night and left the other boys with chiselled, stubbly chins and deep masculine voices, I'd been left with a huge pair of knockers and the voice of a pensioner.' Alan Carr Alan Carr grew up in one of the most boring towns in England -- Northampton. A place known for making shoes. It was also known for its football club, Northampton Town FC. Alan's dad as manager of the club was a local hero. A dream come true for most lads, but not Alan. Alan wore glasses and had man boobs at 14. He did not like P.E. In his very first book, Alan tells his life story, ('oh and what a life') with his unique twist of natural, observational humour -- 'I'm not saying I'm a fantasist but there have been times when things that I've seen on television when I was younger have tended to seep into my subconscious and blended into my own life.I remember telling my Mum about the time I stopped that woman from having a diamond encrusted necklace stolen and she'd say 'No Alan, that was Poirot.' With his tongue-in-cheek, end of pier humour that made him famous, Alan describes an ordinary life in bursts of technicolour. His journey from awkward schoolboy hiding his man-boobs on the pitch, drinking tea with the dinner ladies and working in a call centre, to becoming one of our best-loved comedians likened to the great Frankie Howerd, make his book a guaranteed tickler with a laugh-out-loud gag on every page.

Alan Carr is a national treasure and I do watch him on TV whenever he's on and very much enjoyed his "Tooth Fairy" Stand Up show. So when a book came out, surely it was an easy decision to buy it? Well, actually no. I did have concerns. A fair amount of the aforementioned show spoke of his childhood and growing up, so understandably I was concerned that what I would be getting for my money was a much longer, less funny version of his stand up show.

I was, however, very wrong.

Yes, if you've seen his show, you'll know things such as his dad's profession, where he grew up etc but the detail wasn't actually that much in the show. Perhaps because it wasn't funny? Well after reading his book, it would seem that that too, was wrong. Perhaps it's in the telling, since the book reads so easily, it's as if you're listening to Alan, but even hearing about family holidays to Great Yarmouth become interesting and funny.

I won't go into any more detail but if you like Alan on the Friday Night Project or from his "Tooth Fairy" show, buy the book - you won't be disappointed.
