Frank Skinner was one of the bestselling autobiographies of all time and perhaps the best reviewed. In this new volume of memoirs, Frank Skinner describes his experience of going back on the road and doing stand up again, after many years spent working exclusively on television. His adventures on the road are by turns funny and moving as he meditates on growing older, the terrors and joys of trying to be funny in front of a live audience and on the nature of comedy itself. He interweaves stories of his former laddish behavior and also tells a love story about a girl he had a brief fling with years ago who comes back into his life while he is touring. At the age of fifty, Frank Skinner asks himself : Is it time to grow up?
