9780007426799: Work! Consume! Die!: I Am Actually Almost Completely Insane Now

Outspoken, acid-tongued, brilliantly inappropriate observations from controversial Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle "Charlie Sheen’s life consists of going on huge drug benders with groups of porn stars. If he straightened himself out he could have a really mediocre career as a bit-part Hollywood actor. Playing the role of Martin Sheen’s corpse. He's crazy like a fox! And also actually crazy. What a tragic waste, not being Charlie Sheen is. How majestic it will be for him to die, possibly quite soon, knowing that when they make a movie of his life, it will be a porno." Stand-up comedy's favorite pessimist, Frankie Boyle, offers his outrageous, laugh-out-loud, cynical rant on life as he knows it. He describes reality as viewed through a bloodshot eye pressed against a shit-smeared telescope, focused on hell. A no-holds-barred tour de force of comic writing, this is Frankie Boyle at his brutal, taboo-busting best nothing more or less than the clanging call to arms of a dying mechanical God.

About the Author:

Frankie Boyle is a critically acclaimed comedian and the author of My Shit Life So Far.

Review:

`It's impossible to imagine any of the glut of festive titles packing in quite so many gags as this... better than the mix of memoir and stand-up of his debut, My Shit Life So Far.'Chortle`Caustic and clever...delightfully uncontained - there are no areas into which he will not travel' The Herald`Utterly hilarious and ferociously intelligent...he has launched a one man Jihad against apathy and indifference and in the process has managed to outshine most of what is published today.'
