Toast on Toast - Cautionary tales and candid advice

Hot on the heels of the critical hit Toast Of London, this memoir-slash-acting-guide is Steven Toast through and through, each word personally selected for maximum (bombastic) emphasis. Welcome to his world, and be inspired by this genius who happens to boast the most luxuriant quiff-and-tache combination in showbiz.

In Toast on Toast - part memoir, part 'how to act' manual - Steven Toast draws on his vast and varied experiences, providing the reader with an invaluable insight into his journey from school plays to RADA, and from It's a Right Royal Knockout to the Colony Club.

Along the way, he reveals the secrets of his success. He discloses how to brush up on and expand your technical and vocal skills, how to nail a professional voiceover, and how to deal with difficult work experience staff in a recording studio. He also reveals the dangers of typecasting, describes the often ruthless struggle for 'top billing', and shares many awesome nuggets of advice.

The end result is a book that will inspire and educate anyone who wants to tread the floorboards. It will also inform (and entertain) anybody who simply wants to discover what a jobbing actor's life is actually like.

"Includes a detailed index for quick and easy orientation."

This book is written by Toast Of London writers Matt Berry and Arthur Mathews in character as Toast.
