Description

Russell Brand grew up in Essex . His father left when he was three months old, he was bulimic at 12 and left school at 16 to study at the Italia Conti stage school. There, he began drinking heavily and taking drugs. He regularly visited prostitutes in Soho, began cutting himself, took drugs on stage during his stand-up shows, and even set himself on fire while on crack cocaine. He has been arrested 11 times and fired from 3 different jobs – including from XFM and MTV – and he claims to have slept with over 2,000 women. In 2003 Russell was told that he would be in prison, in a mental hospital or dead within six months unless he went in to rehab. He has now been clean for three years.

In 2006 his presenting career took off, and he hosted the NME awards as well as his own MTV show, 1 Leicester Square, plus Big Brother’s Big Mouth on Channel 4. His UK stand-up tour was sold out and his BBC Radio 6 show became a cult phenomenon, the second most popular podcast of the year after Ricky Gervais. He was awarded Time Out’s Stand Up Comedian of the Year and won Best Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards.

In 2007 Russell hosted both the Brit Awards and Comic Relief, and continued to front Big Brother’s Big Mouth. His BBC2 radio podcast became the UK’s most popular.

Russell writes a weekly football column in the Guardian and is the patron of Focus 12, a charity helping people with alcohol and substance misuse.

Customer Reviews

Read, laugh, learn & laugh some more!!

Russell's story so far, is EVERYTHING, from tragic to tell-all, slimy to sordid, treacherous to triumphant, and it's not even reached it's climax! Booky Wook should be read by everyone over the age of 18, I believe it is the most entertaining, engaging and educational (not least because of the vocabulary) book I have come across in a long time. Heart-warmingly delightful. I guarantee you will fall in love with the loveable rouge that is Brand.

Great book

Not one of those books you can't pit down but still a really good read and pretty funny.

Amazing

Best book I've read! Couldn't put it down, sad, tragic, funny and clever. Can't wait to read number 2 x
