Michael McIntyre.

Michael McIntyre is to publish his second autobiography in October.

Titled A Funny Life, it will see him continuing on telling his life story from where his last book finished.
Published in 2010, Life & Laughing: My Story, which focused on his childhood and early days on the comedy circuit, became a best seller.

Now A Funny Life will see him talking about his more recent career successes.

The publishers explain: "Michael's first book ended with his big break at the 2006 Royal Variety Performance. Waking up the next morning in the tiny rented flat he shared with his wife Kitty and their one-year-old son, he was beyond excited about the new glamorous world of show business. Unfortunately, he was also clueless...

"In A Funny Life, Michael honestly and hilariously shares the highs and the lows of his rise to the top and desperate attempts to stay there. It's all here, from his disastrous panel show appearances to his hit TV shows, from mistakenly thinking he'd be a good chat show host and talent judge, to finding fame and fortune beyond his wildest dreams and becoming the biggest-selling comedian in the world. Along the way he opens his man drawer, narrowly avoids disaster when his trousers fall down in front of three policemen and learns the hard way why he should always listen to his wife."

They add: "Michael has had a silly life, a stressful life, sometimes a moving and touching life, but always A Funny Life."

He released the following comedy sketch to promote the book:

A Funny Life will be released in hardback, eBook and audiobook formats by publishers Macmillan on 14th October. It is available to pre-order now.
