SUMMARY Alanatomy

If you loved Alan's first memoir Look Who It Is then this follow up Alanatomy will take you further into the hilarious and bizarre world of the country's favourite chatty man For anyone who has taken the time to see my stand up performances or watched my chat show 'Chattyman' knows that my body has hardly been kind to me in fact there've been times when we've actually stopped talking to each other Balding myopic often flaky with psoriasis back fat that hangs suspended like a cape a voice that could strip varnish an increasingly dodgy hip and even dodgier teeth Why would you draw attention to it you must ask Couldn't you just call the book something else Do you think. I haven t read Alan Carr s first book yet but that didn t hinder my enjoyment of this one which picks up where the last finished This was a funny enjoyable read I m really only familiar with his show Chatty Man but the stories about his others shows and gigs were still entertaining I had a good time reading it and it has made me want to check out his other book and his stand up work

Alanatomy

Up Alanatomy is the chance for you to get beneath my skin and see the real me because and to continue the anatomical theme if I may this showbiz existence can sometimes feel like an autopsy picked at probed and scrutinized with every inch of your body held up for analysis but unlike an actual autopsy you are very much alive So I give you Alanatomy The Inside Story I am laying myself out on the slab for your entertainment; naked stripped bare Grab your scalpel peel back the skin and go deep have a good old probe around at my life so far Yes you are going to find guts a fair bit of cheek maybe even a little bit of gristle but hopefully you'll find a whole lot of heart'. The second of Alan s autobiographies this basically covers his life since hitting the big time As others have said and Alan himself acknowledges here that means this is of a collection of anecdotes rather than a linear life story as the first book was There is a vague outline that meanders through his time on The Friday Night Project through to Chatty Man and beyond but it s mostly various celebrity encounters and notable events from the past decade I didn t really mind this but if you re averse to name dropping and constant digressions then do beware Read Look Who It Is My Story if you want to know about Alan s childhood and beginnings on the comedy scene and just sit back and enjoy him regaling you with amusing stories in this book I certainly did I adore Alan s turn of phrase and find him so natural and uick as both interviewer and interviewee He never seems to be trying too hard for laughs he just inherently is a funny character I shamelessly laughed out loud multiple times That said there were a few weightier topics included than just celeb gossip which showed a serious side to Alan and balanced out the lols a little A fun book but not really a classic life story memoir It has made me want to read the first book again now

The Great British Public is ready to pore over your body Well as I turn forty and take stock of my showbiz life over the last ten years or so I have learnt to embrace my flaws and face my shortcomings In fact strange as it might seem the things I hate about myself have become my trademark and I am slowly begrudgingly learning to if not love them to at least live with them I am ready now to take a long hard look at myself and that's what Alanatomy is It's the story of my rise to fame the joys the traumas the parties the disappointments Hopefully you will find it witty fun heartwarming but importantly honest and that it will keep you entertained every time you pick it. Alanatomy is the second autobiography from British comedian and chat show legend Alan Carr This book focuses on his celebrity years whereas his first book Look Who It Is focuses on his childhood and rise to fameI really enjoyed both books but for me I much preferred Alanatomy I really enjoyed the insights into Alan s celebrity lifestyle and the behind the scenes information on celebrities we all know and love that have appeared on Alan s chat show Chatty Man Full of stories and gossip about celebrities my favourite anecdotes being meeting Grace Jones and Alan and Bradley Walsh knocking on Lady Gaga s dressing room doorOf course like all autobiographies it isn t all sunshine and sparkles Whilst Alan hasn t really had any negative press or any scandals this book does delve into his partner s alcoholism and about the struggles it had on their relationship Other than that the rest of the book is an upbeat giggle fest and I highly recommend reading it

    A balance must be made in any autobiography between irreverent fun and something meaty that actually makes you think Depending on the person the weight can be one way or the other I would expect a politician to have a serious memoir that is peppered with some amusing anecdotes whilst a comedian would produce the opposite; a funny book that has a few serious bits Alan Carr is perhaps on the surface one of the most irreverent comedians out

    I didn't find this as entertaining as his previous autobiography It didn't feel as structured of a ramble than anything else and I felt like there were interesting storiesmoments in his life that he only devoted a page or two to taking about whereas there were huge chunks of 'less than interesting' storiesOverall 25 stars I think as it was

    Another funny book about Alan's life I really enjoyed his first book This one covered his rise to fame I was a fan of The Friday night project from the start Who knew The coat of cash was a health and safety nightmare? It looked funny watching it from my sofa but Alan said that running through the audience was uite scary Alan's career in c4 has been well deserved as he is very entertaining
