Re-run the Fun: My Life as Pat Sharp by Pat Sharp

'The perfect antidote to 2020' Huffington Post

'A must-read if you like funny things' Greg James

'I had no idea Pat Sharp's life story would be so hilarious and I strongly suspect neither did he' Nish Kumar


Pat Sharp is a man out of time.

For those of a certain generation, he is an iconic figure synonymous with good fun, great hair and excess gunge. For others, he's just that bloke with a mullet.

Fame is a fickle beast and, since the cancellation of Fun House in 1999 ('Just ten years into its run, when it was finally finding its feet'), Pat has become a reclusive figure, only emerging from his splendid isolation to pop up on things like I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Come Dine with Me.

Until now.

With time on his hands and now reliant on a faulty memory, Pat has expertly blended fact and . . . fiction: revealing all about his adventures with David Hassselhoff at the Berlin Wall in 1989; how he broke up a fight between Damon Albarn and Liam Gallagher at a house party; the time he suggested Geri's dress be a Union Jack; and much more.

A definitive work (based on very little fact) that anatomises the cultural trends of the '80s and '90s, Re-run the Fun is just the kind of sorta-biography we need in these turbulent times. Finally, the Great British public can learn what life is like just about in sight of the top - the highs, the lows and the hair tips.

'It's easy to forget, as I had, that Pat Sharp is so much more than an iconic haircut and a helter-skelter - and this well overdue book goes into hilarious, largely-fabricated detail about Pat's critical role in shaping our world today' Rick Edwards

'No previous knowledge of Pat Sharp is required' Paul Sinha

About Pat Sharp

The mullet (and the Pat Sharp beneath it) was born in October 1961. Combined, they are a radio and television presenter and DJ. Pat is probably best known for making ten years of memories on Fun House (1989-1999) and reliving them in the decades since. When he isn't lathering, rinsing and repeating, he can be found DJing to hundreds of thousands of people a year in the UK and abroad.
