About the book:

Have you ever wondered where comedians come from? Why is it that one person is a funny bloke down the pub while another actually makes a living by standing up in front of an audience telling jokes? And where does all that material come from?

Well young Lee McKillop used to wonder that too.

Growing up in his parents’ pub, small and wiry in a world of bigger and chunkier specimens, Lee quickly learned that cracking jokes was a way to get attention.

After a somewhat random series of jobs, which included Red Rum’s stableboy and bingo hall barman, it was as a Great Yarmouth holiday camp entertainer that he had his first crack at telling jokes on stage. It got him some laughs, the sack and a punch in the face*.

Now, as Lee Mack, he’s one of our best loved and most successful comedians, both as a live stand-up and on television.

In Mack the Life, Lee tells the story of how he got there and gives extraordinary insight into 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.

    I was looking forward to this, but it wasnt wat it is advertised. Downloaded it and opened it, it starts off saying Lee Mack autobiography then it starts to load this other thing that u use ur camera take a pic and u can insert this picture thing that goes round ur pic...... Not good.

    Great idea! Could've done a lot more with it though. A bit short lived.
