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.

just seen amazon have price matched this!
Just quidco making this better then!

Waterstones are charging £1.49 postage on top of this at checkout as far as I can see.

Aah, just saw that it's free delivery to store, they only charge if it's under a tenner to your home address.

Have to pay for postage if you don't have a waterstones nearby, so Amazon is better if that's the case (or if you can't afford the bus fare!).

Mock The Week will die when Frankie leaves.

I totally agree! Hugh Dennis is funny, as is David Mitchell when he's on but neither are Frankie Boyle funny! And watching Andy Parsons (The Unfunniest Man on TV Ever) without the relief of Boyle's vitriol would be just too painful for me - I won't be watching when he leaves unless they give Parsons the boot!
