Micky Flanagan - Funny Geezer
Micky Flanagan is one of Britains best-loved cheeky-chappy comedians, thanks to his stand-up routines about how hes gone from growing up in Londons East End in the 1970s to his life now in middle-class suburbia.To date he has two sell-out tours under his belt, nominations from the British Comedy Awards and the Edinburgh Fringe (for Best Comedy Newcomer), not to mention regular stints on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week and The Last Leg, as well as guest appearances on The Jonathan Ross Show, Alan Carr: Chatty Man, The Graham Norton Show and The One Show. Yet a career as a professional comedian was not something that he had ever dreamed of when, as a troublesome teen, he left school aged 15 to work in a fish market.Abi Smith looks at how Micky, who was laughed at by his teachers when he said he wanted to be a vet, has triumphed from his early days working as a fish porter in the East End and as a dishwasher in New York. In this page-turning biography youll also discover why his mum labelled him a drama queen, and how he tried his hand at various professions including trainee teacher and painter and decorator before having the last laugh by becoming one of the countrys most popular funny men.So, pour yourself a cup of Rosie Lee, take the weight off your plates and prepare for a right giraffe as you read this engaging tale of an East Boy done good.
