[BOOKS] ✯ Alanatomy: the Inside Story Author Alan Carr – Mgiworx.co.uk

Alanatomy: the Inside Story Really enjoyed this series of anecdotes stories from the life of Alan Carr especially as I listened via audio and Alan actually spoke to me He was like my real life friend for a little while I would think oh no I need to do some ironing and then, not to worry coz I ll take Alan with me A great read if you share Alan s sense of humour but it s not a complete story or in any way serious just good fun. 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 fame.I 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 abo 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 fame.I 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 door Of 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 Hysterical my boyfriend kept coming upstairs because i was laughing so much. I don t watch much in the way of light entertainment television, but have enjoyed interviews with Alan Carr in the past, so bought this when it came up as a daily deal on Audible Self depreciating and funny, informative without betraying any confidences or creating any spats, it turned out to be an enjoyable, light hearted listen. 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 isof 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 The second of Alan s autobiographies, this basically covers his life since hitting the big time As others

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 quick 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 aserious 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 Time taken to read 3 days in and out Pages

follow up, Alanatomy, will take you further into the hilarious and bizarre world of the country s favourite chatty man 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.My review This is Alan s second book, the first covered his childhood and breaking into showbiz This book picks up where the other leaves off, Alan is headed into his 40s, he has had a step into celebrity and this catalogs his career from there onwards As well as following his career he discloses all that comes with celebrity, the good, the bad, the ugly Things going on in his own life, behind the scenes and some celebrity gossip.If you love celeb gossip you will love this one There is also a lot of raw truth in this, lifts a bit of the shine off the old celebrity lifestyle It is actually quite shocking some of what he went through, just shows that the show must go on is very true and you never quite know what people are going through I think folk often forget how that people in the public eye are just that, people having to put a smile on and portraying life is all glam and fab but dealing with personal challenges I never seen any of his shows but I think after reading the books I need to check them out, I did chuckle at a few parts of the book I said it with the last one I read it hearing his voice so things that maybe wouldn t be funny if coming from his wee voice If he writes another I would buy it, he doesn t seem to be on Twitter his account is he isn t active and I wonder if a lot of it is due to the things mentioned in the book 3 5 for me this time, if you enjoyed his first book and like a wee nosey into celeb life s you will enjoy this 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 there

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 there his interview technique seems to be mostly about comradery and not asking questions of state However, even he would need to strike some sort of balance if he wants Alanatomy to be a must read.This is Carr s second autobiography and it starts off where the first one ended, namely his big break into TV Immediately you are in the realms of seriousness as since appearing regularly on TV with Justin Lee Collins, one star has risen, whilst Collins has fallen At this point the reader is introduced quickly to Carr s style and that is one of refreshing truthfulness, but also a lightness of touch Carr knew Collins before any scandal hit and as a good friend and man Carr touches upon what happened, but sticks to what he actually knows, rather than throwing out conjectures.The book continues in this vein as Carr explores his life as a successful comedian, but not the biggest star The book is very funny and many of the best laughs are on Carr himself as he gets in some daft situations The book is also great for lovers of celebrity gossip Carr is happy to tell a little bit about what happens behind the scenes and divulges who is nice and who is not It is actually refreshing to read a book by a current star willing to call out others, rather than fret about their relationships in the vapid world of celebrity Alanatomy rattles along at a pleasant and enjoyable pace, throwing a laugh in here and some gossip there, but even fans of celebrities will start to feel that the book is lightweight However, just as you start to think the book is nothingthan chatty gossip, Carr opens up The final section is farrevealing that you would expect and explores his relationship and health issues The hard hitting end of the book almost acts as a reward for people who make it to the end Something that was seemingly throwaway suddenly becomes effecting Alanatomy feels like a genuine book

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 quite scary Alan s career in c4 has been well deserved as he is very entertaining.
