Full press release
When Gyles Brandreth set out Looking For Happiness, he started in Las Vegas and ended up in the psychiatrist's chair - with Dr Anthony Clare. What the great man taught him - plus lessons Gyles learnt from his time as an MP and Government Whip, and from unforgettable encounters with Margaret Thatcher, Frankie Howerd and Frank Sinatra - to say nothing of Prince William, Elton John and Sheikh Mohammed - is the essence of this unexpected 60 minutes of hilarious stories and practical advice.
Warm, feel-good comedy from a man of immense wit and intelligence. You leave feeling happy, what more can you ask for?
