My Shit Life So Far Book

An honest, funny and no holds barred account of Frankie Boyle's Shit Life So Far, but this is an autobiography with a bit of a difference. Instead of reliving a step by step account of his life, Boyle leaves out the boring bits and instead focuses on taboo stories. Like the time he worked in a mental hospital, looking after an elderly man who every night ate a huge block of cheese, which Frankie tried tirelessly to persuade him not to do, and the comedians hilarious ideas of names for new reality TV shows.Read More

    Ever since being brought up by The Beatles Frankie Boyle has been a tremendous liar. Join him on his adventures with his chum Clangy The Brass Boy and laugh as he doesn't accidentally kill a student nurse when a party gets out of hand. I don't think anyone can have written an autobiography without at some point thinking "Why would anyone want to know this shit?" I've always read them thinking "I don't want to know where Steve Tyler grew up just tell me how many groupies he f**ked!"' So begins Frankie's outrageous laugh-out loud cynical rant on life as he knows it. From growing up in Pollockshaws Glasgow ('it was an aching cement void a slap in the face to Childhood and for the family it was a step up') to his rampant teenage sex drive ('in those days if you glimpsed a nipple on T.V. it was like porn Christmas') and first job working in a mental hospital ('where most evenings were spent persuading an old man in his pants not to eat a family sized block of cheese') nothing is out of bounds. Outspoken outrageous and brilliantly inappropriate Frankie Boyle the dark heart of Mock the Week says the unsayable as only he can.From the TV programmes he would like to see made ('Celebrities On Acid On Ice: just like Celebrity Dancing On Ice but with an opening sequence where Graham Norton hoses the celebrities down with liquid LSD') to his native Scotland and the Mayor of London ('voting for Boris Johnson wasn't that different to voting for a Labrador wearing a Wonder Woman costume') nothing and no one is safe from Frankie's fearless sharp-tongued assault. Sharply observed and full of taboo-busting we-really-shouldn't-be-laughing-at-this humour My Shit Life So Far shows why Frankie Boyle really is the blackest man in show business.
