Mack The Life
Have you ever wondered where comedians come from? Why it is that one person is a funny bloke down the pub while another makes a living standing in front of an audience telling jokes? And where to the jokes come from anyway? Well young Lee McKillop used to wonder that too...Growing up in his parents' pub, small and wiry in a world of bigger chunkier specimens, Lee quickly learned that cracking jokes was a way to get attention. After a random series of jobs - including stints as Red Rum's stable-boy, a bingo hall barman and wannabe darts player - it was as a Great Yarmouth holiday camp entertainer that he first told jokes on stage. It got him a few laughs, the sack and a punch in the face. Now as Lee Mack, he's one of our most successful and best loved comedians, both live and on television. Mack the Life tells the story of how he got there and explains what really makes comics tick. Hilarious and brilliant, it's the kind of book which reminds you why you learned to read in the first place.
