    I haven t read Alan Carr s first book yet but that didn t hinder my enjoyment of this one which picks up where the last finished This was a funny, enjoyable read I m really only familiar with his show Chatty Man, but the stories about his others shows and gigs were still entertaining I had a good time reading it and it has made me want to check out his other book and his stand up work.

    Really enjoyed this series of anecdotes stories from the life of Alan Carr especially as I listened via audio and Alan actually spoke to me He was like my real life friend for a little while I would think oh no I need to do some ironing and then, not to worry coz I ll take Alan with me A great read if you share Alan s sense of humour but it s not a complete story or in any way serious just good

    I don t watch much in the way of light entertainment television, but have enjoyed interviews with Alan Carr in the past, so bought this when it came up as a daily deal on Audible Self depreciating and funny, informative without betraying any confidences or creating any spats, it turned out to be an enjoyable, light hearted listen.

    Alanatomy is the second autobiography from British comedian and chat show legend Alan Carr This book focuses on his celebrity years whereas his first book Look Who It Is focuses on his childhood and rise to fame.I really enjoyed both books, but for me I much preferred Alanatomy I really enjoyed the insights into Alan s celebrity lifestyle and the behind the scenes information on celebrities we all know and love that ha

    The second of Alan s autobiographies, this basically covers his life since hitting the big time As others have said, and Alan himself acknowledges here, that means this isof a collection of anecdotes rather than a linear life story as the first book was There is a vague outline that meanders through his time on The Friday Night Project through to Chatty Man and beyond, but it s mostly various celebrity encounters and notable events fr

    A balance must be made in any autobiography between irreverent fun and something meaty that actually makes you think Depending on the person the weight can be one way or the other I would expect a politician to have a serious memoir that is peppered with some amusing anecdotes, whilst a comedian would produce the opposite a funny book that has a few serious bits Alan Carr is perhaps, on the surface one, of the most irreverent comedians out th

    I didn t find this as entertaining as his previous autobiography It didn t feel as structuredof a ramble than anything else and I felt like there were interesting stories moments in his life that he only devoted a page or two to taking about, whereas there were huge chunks of less than interesting stories.Overall 2.5 stars I think, as it was still amusing and entertaining in parts, but could have been saved by a better edit and perhaps planning.

    Another funny book about Alan s life I really enjoyed his first book This one covered his rise to fame I was a fan of The Friday night project from the start Who knew The coat of cash was a health and safety nightmare It looked funny watching it from my sofa but Alan said that running through the audience was quite scary Alan s career in c4 has been well deserved as he is very entertaining.
