My nephew introduced me to the stand-up comedian Joe Lycett and I really liked him; I watched what was on YouTube, and then his stand-up shows, and saw clips from his Channel 4 show Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back.
And then I read this. And about 80% of it is his stand-up. Verbatim.
He’s very funny in how he deals with parking fines, or spammers – like a much nicer version of notorious (and notoriously funny) internet troll 27b/6 – but this book, given that it was word for word content I knew already, was incredibly disappointing.
And to be honest, it’s not really the format for it. It’s better hearing him do the routines live. The ones in the book are longer, and like, there’s not much need for them to be. Go see him live, or watch him on tv – avoid this one.
