Summary

Cockney comedian Micky Flanagan's debut radio show charts the ups and downs of his life, from Billingsgate fish porter to successful stand-up comic and from Sunblest to panini, tabloids to broadsheets and the street party to the dinner party. Each week's episode focuses on a different decade of Micky's life, and he regales us with autobiographical stories told through stand-up comedy. In between the laughs, the programme goes behind the scenes with short interviews that give an insight into Micky the man.

Written and performed by Micky Flanagan, and produced by Tilusha Ghelani.

Funny and Entertaining

More Entertaining than funny but never the less I listened all the way through. There is something somewhat pleasing about his voice that makes you want to listen. Although everything he's saying is funny it's not exactly laughing out loud and more as a smile and occasional giggle once every ten minutes and ending with complete laughter probably about 4 to 5 times during.

Worth it? probably.

Have to constantly adjust the volume

a strange listening experience this one. It cuts from him on stage to him talking to friends and family and back again with loud intro music to open each section. the conversations with friends and family are quiet then the stage stuff is loud very annoying when driving.

Good listen

If your looking for an insight into someone's life then this is an excellent way of doing just that, but with a twist, someone's life with a laugh and a smile. An easy listen, that provides a good overview of Micky Flanagan. I smiled and laughted throughout. A good listen, we'll narrated by the author.

What’s Gary Hutton up to?

Micky Flanagan’s stories and act work really well on this audio. A nice insight into his background, I’ve heard and seen the act before but it’s still funny and the little interludes with friends and family are genuinely interesting.

Excellent!

Loved it! Micky was extremely funny as usual. Enjoyed hearing his family talk about his former life and rise to the 'middle classes'
