Overview


In 2006 Russell Brand exploded onto the international comedy scene. He has been named Time Out’s Comedian of the Year, Best Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards, and Most Stylish Man by GQ’s Men. His UK stand-up tour was sold out and his BBC Radio 6 show became a cult phenomenon, the second most popular podcast of the year. Before the fame, however, Russell’s life was anything but glamorous. His father left when he was three months old, he was bulimic at age 12, and began drinking heavily and taking drugs by age 16. He regularly visited prostitutes in Soho, began cutting himself, took drugs on stage during his stand-up shows, and even set himself on fire while on crack cocaine. In 2003 Russell was told that he would be in prison, a mental hospital, or dead within six months unless he went into rehab. He has now been clean for three years, and hasn’t looked back since. This is Russell’s amazing story.

    Incredible!

    I loved this book! I love Russell Brand! It was an amazing read. I'll admit I get bored sometimes when I start a new book. I think I'm easily disappointed. But I didn't want to put this book down. When I finished it-I missed it. I wanted to read it again. Russell has an amazing story and I'm so happy he wrote it all down. I laughed, I cringed and I cried. Honestly, I felt young again after reading it. Maybe even hopeful. I thought if he's able to keep going after all he's done and been through- then maybe there is hope for us all. Who knew the next comedic Messiah would actually have relations with prostitues and be vegetarian !?! Perhaps all great learning does come from suffering. xoxo

    Good Job Russell Brand

    I love this book a lot, i love reading the story of his life. is comedy is super funny, but his life was kinda sad in a way. Russel Brand is the best new comedian so far and i see nothing but good things happening to him in the future

    Marvelous!

    I loved this book! Russel Brand is hilarious and straight-forward about his past. It includes pictures, as well as hilarious, inappropriate language.

    unintelligible blabber.

    A story that could have been compelling had a real author been brought into the process.

    Decent stories, but hard to read.

    I'd seen his stand up on TV a few times and thought it was hilarious, but I really disliked his book. Basically it was just generally hard to read. He goes off on tangents and then jumps back to what he was saying before without making a whole lot of sense. Most of the stories were okay, but some of it was just like "let's see if I can find the most outragous stuff that ever happened to me and write it down even if it doesn't make sense with what I'm talking about or really have any value what so ever."
    Basically if you're looking for a funny read this isn't it, but if you're just looking to know more about Russell, here more than you ever wanted to know. For me it was a struggle to finish the whole thing.
