The controversial, unexpurgated, and hilarious life story of the nation's hottest comedian - in his own words.
'My life is a series of embarrassing incidents strung together by telling people about those embarrassing incidents.
Russell Brand grew up in Essex. His father left when he was three months old, he was bulimic at 12, and left school at 16 to study at the Italia Conti stage school. There, he began drinking heavily and taking drugs. In 2003, he was told that he would be in prison, in a metal hospital or dead within six months unless he went in to rehab. He decided to get clean, and has since become an internationally successful stand-up comedian, TV host, radio broadcaster and columnist, and is also the patron of 'Focus 12', a charity helping people with alcohol and substance misuse.
Russell Brand is a comedian, journalist, TV and radio presenter and actor. He has won numerous awards including Time Out's Comedian of the Year, Best Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards, Best TV Performer at the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards, Most Stylish Man at GQ's Men of the Year Awards and the Sun's Shagger of the Year.
'Candid, funny and moving.' -- Sun 'How in God's name did the publishers ever get him to sit down and write the bloody thing? Because make no mistake - unlike most celebrity biogs, MY BOOKY WOOK has definitely been written by Brand.' -- London Lite 'Part funny, but part hugely disturbing ...' -- Grazia 'The most talented stand-up comedian to emerge in Britain this decade, Brand combines Eddie Izzard's rare ability to carry a whole crowd along on an audacious flight of comic fancy with the carnal magnetism of the young George Best. Audiences leave a Brand performance not just entertained but actively debauched by his catalogue of erotic misadventure.' -- Daily Telegraph 'To his expanding CV can now be added a scandalous, libidinous memoir that is better written and more entertaining than any number of the celebrity autobiographies that clog the shelves of bookshops.' -- Observer 'The Russell Brand of MY BOOKY WOOK is surprisingly approachable. The comedian's playful love of language is evident from his occasional lapse into obscure or archaic words, and sits well with his penchant for childishness... Inevitably, the main point of interest is Brand's addictions, drugs and sex, about which he writes with unexpected affability.' -- Herald '335 dismal, masturbatory pagey-wages. ' -- Ian Hislop, Have I Got News For You 'Hliarious, sometimes brilliant, and always indulgenht' -- Christopher Goodwin, Sunday Times 20080420 'rdgfdghfh.' -- bob, Independent 20080420
