Peter Kays autobiography starts off pretty funny then fades the further it goes on. There are quite afew funny bits but I am on the fence about whether I found it particularly interesting or not.
There was something about this book I just couldn't put my finger on and meant I wasn't quite engaged in it which was a shame. I quite like Peter Kay as a comedian but I am not a huge fan and maybe thats why I am on the fence as avid fans probably really enjoyed it.
Dec 02, Plum-crazy rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm not one for autobiographies or memoirs but I did enjoy this. It's just like listening to him talk If you've seen his Mum Want's A Bungalow show, you'll recognise a lot of the anecdotes May 27, Elizabeth rated it it was ok.
Not my cup of tea. I have enjoyed Peter Kay as a comedian but as a writer, no. This book being an autobiography I wanted to know something of the man and how he got to be a comedian. Feb 24, Soozee rated it really liked it. An entertaining read, charting Peter Kay's early life and rise to becoming a successful comedian. In parts it seemed to jump around and lack cohesion, but overall its a good read - a 'laugh out loud' book.
Not sure about his confessions to petty thievery, but maybe going public puts the management of such establishments on the alert! An easy and pleasant book to read; you can hear his voice in the narrative.
Apr 09, Honor Grainger-Howard rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am not a huge fan of autobiographies but this is the only book my husband has ever mentioned to me that may be because it is the only one he has ever read so I was guilted into reading it. However, it is hysterically funny and wildly relatable, Peter Kay is the everyman. It was also by chance that I read it before sitting my driving test Mar 20, Gareth rated it liked it.
Peter Kay is a very funny man, but this autobiography feels a bit odd. Apr 14, Theo Kokonas rated it it was ok.
If you're looking for a laugh-out-loud read, this isn't it. Peter Kay's stand-up performances are impressive but his writing skills are ok. It's not that I hated it, it just didn't have that staying power I expected of it.
This book appears to be a staple in the charity shops I frequent for good reason; you read it, think "yeah, it was ok" and pass it on. Jul 06, Charlotte Smith rated it it was amazing.
What a good book from Peter Kay, hope there is a second book from him. Jun 21, Becky rated it really liked it. A fairly quick, very engaging, chatty read. Aug 24, Kbrown rated it it was amazing. Jun 19, Kathlyn rated it it was ok.
I like Peter Kay - I think he's hilarious but this book just isn't. May 05, Kate Lowe rated it it was amazing. Hilarious from page one, had to keep stopping as I couldn't see to read through the tears of laughter.
Aug 31, Tony rated it liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Lightweight autobiography covering his early life up to winning a stand-up competition, passing his driving test and meeting his wife. As I didn't really know anything about him, it was amusing.
Jan 07, lorraine rated it it was ok. He has also the attribute of having a similar effect to the sales of DVDs. Peter on the other hand , could quite well become the Alan Bennett for the next generation if his first book is anything to go by.
He is just funny and inoffensive. Unlike you. The mention of things, products, places, TV shows of yesteryear makes you chuckle and turn the page and the fact that you do realise that this is not really a celebrity at all or not one that embraces the culture of is quite significant and evidence of his appeal. Aug 02, Olivia rated it really liked it Shelves: Peter Kay is one of those comedians that I often laughed at when I saw him on television. However, I wouldn't have called myself a fan.
I thought there was something endearing about him and I always related to his anecdotes but that was that. The cover image of Kay in his Sound of Music garb was enough for me. I brought it home and went to my spiritual home IE.
The bathroom where I took up resid Peter Kay is one of those comedians that I often laughed at when I saw him on television. The bathroom where I took up residency for quite some time! Kay is British but his childhood was quite similar to my Irish Catholic one and he is of the same vintage. I laughed aloud at his description of the 'good room' mentality. For those not in the know the 'good room' was a forbidden zone for many children of a certain generation.
Kay came from a Coronation Street type home -- a small two up two down house. Yet his mother still insisted on keeping one room for guests. The 'good room' was strictly off limits unless someone turned up.
So basically, you had this ridiculous situation of not being allowed in to one room unless an outsider came in. Crammed in like sardines unless a visitor called. The book is laugh out loud funny. His description of the awful jobs he took before he hit the big time are hilarious.
His attempts to learn how to drive, the characters he met in his menial jobs -- the book is a real treat if you need a quick 'pick me up' after a stressful work week. This is the first time I've read an autobiography. I'm not the type of person that is star struck, but I love Peter Kay! I'm a little older than him, but we were brought up in the same era so I could relate to everything he jokes about, despite just being a southerner.
And he is so funny! The book was well written. I only found two very minor mistakes.
As I have never read an autobiography, I don't have anything else to compare it to. But I laughed out loud on many occasions whilst reading this. It was so very interesting to see how Peter came from such a normal family to reach the stardom he has now but some measure of luck.
I find Peter very talented and it is a great inspiration to see how all his determination and hard work paid off for him. This book is very English, so I'm not sure what the American market would make of it. Here is a funny little story from myself. We have a gnome in our garden that we call Peter Kay. My grandchildren painted two gnomes for our garden.
One of them looked like something from a horror movie and the other, for some strange reason looks just like Peter Kay! Sep 05, Silpa Parmar rated it it was ok. I was rather disappointed with this book as it was not nearly as funny as I was expecting it to be. But unfortunately, all I could muster were slight smiles rather than full-blown how-embarassing-I'm-pissing-myself-with-laughter-while-on-the-bus-and-now-everyone-thinks-I'm-a-weirdo moments.
Peter's tales while he was at school were amusing but his sto I was rather disappointed with this book as it was not nearly as funny as I was expecting it to be. Peter's tales while he was at school were amusing but his stories of going from one part-time job to another were a bit on the boring side. A lot of the references were lost on me I didn't realise he was that much older than me but there were a couple than rang a bell.
I don't think I'll bother with his other books for the moment though. On the plus side, I actually laughed out loud - something I never do - several times, and I found it interesting to read about his adolescence. But even I recognised some of this prose as material from his stand up routine.
I was also disappointed that it stopped before describing his rise to fame. I suppose that's so he can make some more money from his subsequent books. I also found the writing style really clunky. Although it did read as though Kay were actually speaking, his humour isn't subtle enough for me. I don't need to be told when he was being sarcastic or making a joke. Jul 11, Caroline Rhea rated it really liked it.
Apr 28, Heather Hill rated it it was amazing. I loved this book. There was so much heart between the pages, as well as laughter. Anyone can see Mr Kay has a big heart and is more highly sensitive than you'd perhaps expect from a stand up comedian. I do agree with a previous reviewer who said it ends too soon, but only because I wanted to ke I loved this book. I do agree with a previous reviewer who said it ends too soon, but only because I wanted to keep listening to him 'talk' and no more about him.
Clearly a big hearted guy. Thanks so much for the laughs Peter Kay. Very few books make me literally laugh out loud.
