Reveals the highs and lows of comedian Jack Dee's early life and disastrous day jobs. This book presents his views on personal trainers, boutique hotels, the overrated moon landing and 'people who hold their cutlery the wrong way'.
For the first time, comedian Jack Dee reveals the highs and lows of his early life and disastrous day jobs. You don't just wake up jaundiced and bitter; it's taken Jack years of dedication and commitment to brew his unique cocktail of disillusionment and bile. What turned this once optimistic young man into a grumpy middle-aged git? Was it working in an artificial-leg factory? Or delivering incontinence pads for the NHS? Or was it the time when he was shunned by his peers for daring to thrash a one-armed man at tennis? In this hilariously frank account of his life, Jack finally answers the question, 'So how did you get started in comedy then?' Along the way, he shares his blatantly unreasonable views on everything from personal trainers to boutique hotels, via the overrated moon landing and 'people who hold their cutlery the wrong way'. Once you've read this book, you'll never think of Jack Dee as a smiling, happy-go-lucky, friendly face again
