Hilarious

Dara O'Briain is one of the funniest comedians out there and this is proof! Be aware that this is the same as the DVD of the same name, but is still a great laugh out loud listen.

Disapointed

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed. If you're looking for Dara doing a live show that's full of gags then honestly buy the DVD, I love Dara, I've seen him live and seen this show before without knowing it's name. Dara's a fantastic comedian but his shows have visual gags that you really miss in this format. Even though I've seen this show before I didn't remember it's name so when I saw the title I figured it was a funny autobiography, especially since I came from Marcus Brigstocke's God Collar. Funny, but I've seen it before, it wasn't what I was looking for, and isn't really in the right format.

Average

Amusing but not as funny as he is on Mock the Week. He is probably a better straight man as a foil to other comedians.

Worth a listen to if you have a credit to use up.
