Laugh along with Michael McIntyre as he lifts the curtain on his life in his long-awaited autobiography.

Michael's first book ended with his big break at the 2006 Royal Variety Performance. Waking up the next morning in the tiny rented flat he shared with his wife Kitty and their one-year-old son, he was beyond excited about the new glamorous world of show business. Unfortunately, he was also clueless . . .

In A Funny Life, Michael honestly and hilariously shares the highs and the lows of his rise to the top and desperate attempts to stay there. It's all here, from his disastrous panel show appearances to his hit TV shows, from mistakenly thinking he'd be a good chat show host and talent judge, to finding fame and fortune beyond his wildest dreams and becoming the biggest-selling comedian in the world. Along the way he opens his man drawer, narrowly avoids disaster when his trousers fall down in front of three policemen and learns the hard way why he should always listen to his wife.

Michael has had a silly life, a stressful life, sometimes a moving and touching life, but always A Funny Life.

Michael McIntyre's spot-on observational comedy and ability to turn everyday situations into masterclasses of human exasperation have struck a chord with millions of fans, making him one of the most successful comedians in the world. He holds the record for highest-selling artist at London's The O2, the UK's biggest arena, after twenty-eight sold-out shows. Michael's Big World Tour saw him sell over 800,000 tickets across the globe, culminating with him recording his Netflix special at the London Palladium. In addition to stand-up, Michael hosts the smash-hit television shows Michael McIntyre's Big Show (which won him a BAFTA for Best Entertainment Performance) and Michael McIntyre's The Wheel. His first book, Life and Laughing, was a number one bestseller.
