Life and Laughing: My Story Reviews
I am absolutely in love with this charming "Chinese man," as he calls himself because when he smiles, his eyes squint. He is spot on with observational humor about being a parent, travel, weather, traffic, the man drawer, jesting about his various countrymen's accents, going to the dentist, etc. I found myself watching his YouTube videos over and over again. Depending on his audience, there are some clips with foul language, but, he has a delightful British accent which makes it all sound so perfectly acceptable! I had never heard of Michael McIntyre until I stumbled on one of his YouTube videos where he talks about people who don't have children don't know. I wanted to know more about him, where did he come from, how did he become one of the world's most financially successful comedians and then I found this book. He is a man of pure heart, loves his parents, his siblings, his beautiful supportive wife and his two sons, Lucas and Oscar, and he gives credit to those who helped him succeed after years of struggling to break into the industry. This is not a depressed comedian.
I normally do not read an autobiography, I was searching on You Tube and saw Michael McIntyre. I watched the video and laughed so hard I could hardly catch my breath. His jokes were clean and no vulgar language was used. I googled his name to find some more information, I saw he wrote a book so I downloaded it to my G-pad. I read it in two days.
This was such an unexpected delight! I love Michael McIntyre and find him hilarious but had no idea of his background and heritage. What a fascinating read!
A funny and interesting book. This book was not too different to Michael McIntyre on stage and I enjoyed it very much. He decided to remove what he had written about his life after he had become famous but I would have imagined that he would be able to get into scrapes and awkward situations even when famous- we all have a knack for things like that, but some more than others.
If you like Michael McIntyre on the stage, you will also enjoy this book. What I always have liked about this multi-talented comedian, is that his humour is kind of innocent. He seems to be totally relaxed at his performances and sends out good energy. What makes him different from many other stand-up comedians is that he not only tells jokes, but also acts them out. By reading his book, you will find out how he has come to be as good as he is, in his art. He has a colorful background. He has been very rich and also lived with very little. It is amusing to read about his grandmother. Young Michael experienced problems with self-esteem and popularity among the opposite sex. In his adulthood he worked very hard to break through in the stand-up comedy world. I think that his positive attitude no matter what, has kept him going and made him world-famous, just as a fortune-teller had predicted to his mother.
I really love his comedy style, and his story is very cheerful. Not so well known in the States, I wonder why!
Lots of humor as well as some tragedy in this book, as Michael tells his story...but mainly is inspirational, because Michael never gives up
I loved every minute of it. I read it firstly on a cruise and had to finish it quickly as we were docking and getting off.So I read it again recently and loved it and laughed just as loudly as the first time. He is the funniest of people,he finds the humour in life and in everything.He has had it hard to begin with and that secondhand sofa and the car that could only turn right. made me cry with laughter. It is to my way of thinking, the funniest book I have read in years. I would like him to write more...
