Summary

As a 17-year-old virgin working...for Virgin, Joel Dommett has grand ambitions. Firstly, he is going to swap suburbia for the bright lights of showbiz. Secondly, he is going to find 'the one' - and sets himself the very achievable target of finding her in the first 50 people he's definitely going to sleep with.

What follows is a series of disastrous romantic encounters, including carpets mistaken for toilets, futile grand gestures and the catfishing to end all catfishing.

Featuring genuine teenage diary entries and told in Joel's trademark self-deprecating style, this is the brilliant first book from the UK's most exciting comedian.

Laughed like a drain. Well done Joel what a treat.

Top two.

What other book might you compare It's Not Me, It's Them to, and why?

This is going to hurt, Adam Kay

Totally relateable

Any additional comments?

I have read nearly 300 books and only two have left me compelled to write brief review.
After two weeks of work and life stress resulting in a very grumpy old mare I bought this book as I love Joel on telly and it truly cheered me up.
Joel has managed with this book to take the reader on a nostalgic journey filled with charming and at times moving tales that anyone could have experienced.
I clearly have no idea how to write a review but trust me when i say it is just a light, funny, funny book.

Joel, thank you on behalf of me children for jolting their mum out of a funk.
Congratulations on finding the one and sharing the love. xx

Soooooo funny!

Can’t believe so many funny/embarrassing things can happen to one person! Very entertaining and told so well. I didn’t know who Joel Dommett was. This book was recommended by a friend. He seems like a lovely, down to earth man and I thoroughly enjoyed his tale!

Simply fantastically funny, honest and a great audible book. A wonderfully different approach to an autobiography.

Now one of my favourite audible books!

Absolutely loved this book! Lots of laugh out loud moments which I think is essential for this genre! I have listened to nearly 20 comedians on audible and this is definitely up there as one of my favourites!
