"His autobiography is filled to the very brim with funny bits" heat "He is every bit as amusing on the page as he is in person... Hilarious" Sunday Express "The Sound of Laughter provides as complete a picture of its subject's world view and creative evolution as any comedian's autobigraphy I can think of" Independent on Sunday "J. K. Rowling can't compete. Nor can Dan Brown. By selling more than a million copies in hardback, the highest figure since records began, this autobiography by the comedian Peter Kay has become a minor miracle" The Times
