When not work­ing Nick likes a good laugh. Cur­rently he is get­ting that through co­me­dian Michael McIn­tyre’s au­to­bi­og­ra­phy. Michael McIn­tyre Life and Laugh­ing re­veals his show­biz roots, his ap­palling at­tempts to at­tract the op­po­site sex, his fish-out-of-wa­ter move from pub­lic to state school and his as­ton­ish­ing jour­ney from sell­ing just one ticket at the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val to sell­ing half a mil­lion tick­ets on his last tour. Michael McIn­tyre’s “Life and Laugh­ing” is riv­et­ing, poignant, ro­man­tic and above all very, very funny. Michael McIn­tyre was born in South Lon­don in 1976 to par­ents from the world of show­biz. His Hun­gar­ian mother was a dancer and his Cana­dian fa­ther co-wrote “The Kenny Everett Tele­vi­sion Show”. Now he is a stand-up co­me­dian who in 2009 sold out a record six nights at Wem­b­ley Arena and four nights at Lon­don’s O2. Michael lives in North Lon­don with his wife Kitty and their sons Lu­cas and Os­car. This is his first book.
