Look Who It Is!: My Story | [Alan Carr]

Look Who It Is!: My Story

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.'"

Publisher's Summary

Famed for his gentle innocence and brilliant observational wit, comedian Alan Carr describes his childhood growing up in a football-mad family in Northampton and 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 famous 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 has 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, will make his audiobook a guaranteed tickler, with a laugh-out-loud gag at every turn.

    "Laugh out loud"

    I loved this book, The way Alan tells his story had me laugh out loud in a shops and on the bus several times at one point I had to stop listening all together because people started to look concerned for me when I had tears falling down my cheeks whilst trying to muffle my chuckles. Wish it was longer! Loved it!

    "Hilarious"

    I listened to this audiobook on the way to college, and it is amazing. I laugh every time with Alan Carr narrating it, so if you like a good laugh, buy this book.

    "An entertaining listen!"

    He's one of my favourite comedians and I took this on holiday for a holiday laugh - and I didn't stop. Alan himself narrates this book and he brings his comic style to the book. He candidly talks about his early life as well as up to date material. A recommended read if you want a good laugh!

    "Twas OK, I suppose"

    Heard great things of this audiobook, but it just didn't float my boat. Of course there were the inevitable 'funny bits' you'd expect from a comedian's autobiography, but I found them more 'smile' funny, rather than 'laugh out loud' funny. Overall I just felt that Alan Carr hasn't really had enough history to write an interesting book about! The majority about it was his career, going from stand-up gig to stand-up gig, receiving this award, that award and ending the book at possibly the most notable point in his career, when he became known to the general public for the Friday Night Project. It possibly leaves things open for a second book, but I don't think I'll be purchasing.

    "Hilarious and heart warming"

    Don't do as I did and try to listen to this falling asleep - it had me randomly laughing throughout the night. I loved this book!

    "Look Who It IS"

    I'm a big fan of Alen Carr so I decided to buy this audio book so that i could get a more inciteful look it to his life and to be honest it seemed like a rollercoaster with alot of ups and only a fews downs. I found the book to be very funny I couldnt stop myself from embarrasing myself from the amount of laughter I went through I would thoroughly enjoy the book again and would recommend it for a long journey as it 4 hours plus.
