Waterstones Says

Bursting with the unique comic imagination that makes him such a beloved entertainer, Bob Mortimer’s memoir takes in his numerous misadventures on the path to fame yet doesn’t shy away from moving reflections on the death of his father and his own diagnosis with a serious heart condition.

Signed Edition

A standard edition is available here.

The long-awaited first autobiography by national treasure Bob Mortimer.

 Bob Mortimer's life was trundling along happily until suddenly in 2015 he was diagnosed with a heart condition that required immediate surgery and forced him to cancel an upcoming tour. The episode unnerved him, but forced him to reflect on his life so far. This is the framework for his hilarious and moving memoir, And Away...

 Although his childhood in Middlesbrough was normal on the surface, it was tinged by the loss of his dad, and his own various misadventures (now infamous from his appearances on Would I Lie to You?), from burning down the family home to starting a short-lived punk band called Dog Dirt. As an adult, he trained as a solicitor and moved to London. Though he was doing pretty well (the South London Press once crowned him 'The Cockroach King' after a successful verdict), a chance encounter in a pub in the 1980s with a young comedian going by the name Vic Reeves set his life on a different track. And now, six years on, the heart condition that once threatened his career has instead led to new success on BBC2's Gone Fishing.

Warm, profound, and irrepressibly funny, And Away... is Bob's full life story (with a few lies thrown in for good measure.)

“It's always the quiet ones...”

A lifelong hero of mine. This is a gentle and very funny account of Bob's life and recent health scare. I read this in a day. His account of his childhood, the trauma of his father's sudden death and his... More

“Excellent”

Thoroughly enjoyed the book, what’s disappointing is that it’s such a compulsive read it finishes too soon.

Highly recommend

“This book is proper good. Well worth A Big Night In.”

Fabulous book with lovely handwriting. This lad will go far. He is especially good at making people laugh, supporting The ‘Boro with his great mate and fishing with his show biz pal, Paul.
