Frequent flashes of comic genius demonstrate why this waiter found
fame - The Sunday Times He's got lots of tales to tell - and he
does it with skill, humour and so much warmth. We loved it - Heat
It's funny, naturally, but darker than you'd expect - Glamour 'No
life can really be all black, right? Even during the darkest times,
what got me through that bleakness was laughter and time. With
enough of both of these things I reckon you could get over just
about anything.' Nick Frost burst onto our screens in a blaze of
camo fatigues and weaponry as the Territorial Army obsessed
loveable idiot Mike Watt in the hit cult comedy Spaced. Since then,
fans around the world have watched him with a fervent devotion as
he fought zombies, rescued aliens and salsa'd his way to box office
smash after smash. It's quite a story. But it's not this story.
This story isn't the romp from movie set to Hollywood party. This
is a story of a life like no other. With blistering candour Frost
recounts his childhood growing up in Essex in a household full of
love and optimism but tragically blighted by alcoholism, illness
and sudden life shattering misfortune. Dogged by his own personal
demons, Nick tells of the hilarious, jaw dropping and at times
heartbreaking experiences that have punctuated his tumultuous life.
This is exhilarating, joyful and unforgettable storytelling and
unlike any memoir you're likely to read.
