Comedian Tony Martin's genius for unearthing the eccentric in seemingly ordinary people is laid bare in this hilarious new collection of tales from his tumultuous life outside show business.
Spanning four decades, two nations, and a number of embarrassing medical procedures and ancient family disputes, Martin's stories are light on the epic, and unsparing in the detail. Be amused and appalled as Tony discovers his parents are censoring bare breasts in the National Geographic, attempts to start a band with no musical skill whatsoever and returns to his hometown to discover his grandfather is not the man he thought he was.

Great in parts
A good holiday read that on occasions has you laughing out loud.
Get in strife for laughing out loud
I love this book! I am constantly being looked at, prodded and poked for laughing out loud at Tony's book. I don't know if it's because I've been a keen Martin fan for many years, or because I can identify with the times, but I just find this book LOL funny. So many stories have me giggling while my mind paints the picture from Tony's words over and over and over again. I have to put this book down while I try to regain my composure. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. I hope you'll love it as much as I do. I'm sure I'll read this one again and again.
This is a story of a man who has lived through horrors but found the will to survive through humour, and for this reason, I revere him.
The book elicited many startled laughs. Tony has a way of expressing the bizarre that is simply very funny.
I want to read more, so I’m hoping for a third book.
