Summary

A hilarious and honest collection of stories, thoughts, and tales of a life in comedy from the award-winning comic Adam Hills. 

Adam Hills is one the UK's best loved comedians. For 30 years he has been performing stand-up, hosting TV shows and winning the hearts of a nation. 

Taking us from the early days of the Sydney Stand Up scene to hosting his own radio show, touring the world and eventually landing on British TV, Best Foot Forward is a story of a life in comedy. Along the way Adam shares some childhood tales and a few backstage blunders and encounters some fairly famous faces - the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Connolly, and that guy who sang The Macarena. Yes, him. 

This is an utterly hilarious and honest collection of stories about Adam's ups and downs in the world of comedy. It's a lesson in following your heart, being positive and discovering that what makes you different also makes you unique.

An utter joy!

Adam Hills must be one of the most optimistic celebrities out there. His winsome personality shines through his reading of this book... and all the time you can literally hear him smile. A lovely few joyful hours spent listening to him chat away about his life, his loves and his idols is definitely something I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.

An uplifting, life-affirming joy

Finishing this audio book was like waving a good friend off at the airport after a great holiday. It left a void. I’ll be seeking out more of Adam Hills’ audio books - he’s so easy to listen to and so effortlessly upbeat, it’s impossible not to be swept along on his tidal wave of positivity.

‘Read’ it and weep... with joy!

Funny, honest and modest

I'm guessing Adam has had a few more struggles in life than this book suggests, but, to steal a quote from the epilogue, I love his 'Aussie optimism'.
