In that Lloyd Cole review, which you can see Limmy talking about on his youtube channel, Lloyd Cole said maybe one reason he didn't get into the book was because he didn't know Limmy's work when he read it, and that much makes sense. If you are a fan of Limmy you will get much more from this than someone who doesn't know him. Personally, I am a huge fan of "Limmy's Show", so when he starts talking about the "Millport" sketch or the "Yoker" sketch I know exactly what he is talking about and found it fascinating to see the genesis of the ideas behind these sketches and how they came to be made. If you are not a fan, that may be less interesting, though you can always watch the sketches on youtube as you are reading. Limmy: Drink fight was no joke". the Glaswegian.

I love Limmy and really enjoy his humour, but this was just so beyond what I enjoy reading lol Of course, I didn’t expect jokes constantly and I honestly really enjoyed his view on mental illness and being human, even when his writing got very dark at times. In Januar 2016, Limmy did fower nichts at the Clyde Auditorium an ane nicht at the Hammersmith Apollo, takin material frae his telly shaws tae become Limmy Live! [20] In Mey 2016, he pit forrit his seicont beuk o short stories, That's Your Lot, he yokit til ainither beuk readin-tour. [21] [22] So candid. I don’t think I ever read/listened to an autobiography like this one, and the honest nature of the writing makes it so worth the time, whether you know his work or not, this gets to the deep inner workings of a person. I loved all the coming of age stories, the humour of it, but also the fact that he is not really clowning his younger self or the personal significance of those moments. But I couldn’t enjoy all the teenage/college age years. It was just not what I wanted to read about. Not Limmy’s fault of course, but I view myself as someone who can appreciate crass humour or explicit sex stories - and the stuff in this book was just way too bleugh for me. That’s all I can describe it as. I just didn’t want to read about him masturbating or his sexual encounters. It grossed me out and honestly made me want to DNF, which takes a lot, but it just wasn’t enjoyable or funny or even cringy. It was just bleugh.Flammable Jam directors split but agency goes on".

Audiobook's worth it - the prose is very plain and his accent's strong but clear. Fans only, but you should be a fan. Limond describes the teenage years he spent drinking and getting into trouble, on one occasion stealing a car, with disarming honesty in his autobiography, Surprisingly Down to Earth and Very Funny. “I don’t like hiding things. If I can expose the weaknesses in myself, they can’t be uncovered,” he says. “But I didn’t write about my life with the aim of then saying, ‘This is how you can get better’. I just wanted to get it out and it turns out that being open can be a big help in showing people they are not alone.” Limmy kythed on Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast in 2015, [23] 2017, [24] an 2019. [25] He kythed on the Blindboy Podcast in 2020 an aw. [26] They asked him to write a book about mental health, since he sometimes talks about his mental health in interviews and tweets, like anxiety and suicidal thoughts, and what he has done to try and deal with it. This is a fantastic read if you are an oddball that likes the surreal, strange, and brilliant. There are so many funny and slightly twisted wee stories. Each of these stories makes you laugh.I could have guessed that he'd had a life like this from his characters; so much authentic idiocy, lunacy, awkwardness, pretension, and pettiness. Surprised that Dee-Dee is based on his own trippy blankness; Limmy's so sharp these days.
