I'm Only In It for the Parking

Life and laughter from the priority seats




From the much-loved winner of Britain's Got Talent, this is an hilarious and thought-provoking romp through life with a blue badge.

AS HEARD ON RADIO 4'S 'ABILITY'- 'A truly eye-opening book from a fantastic comedian.' ADAM KAY- 'Comedy genius... The funniest book I've read in years.' DAVID WALLIAMSLee Ridley won the hearts and minds of the nation on Britain's Got Talent. Now the much-loved comedian opens up about what it's like to be him.

I'm Only In It for the Parking is a wonderful romp through Lee's extraordinary life, by way of the people who like to pray for him, the comparisons with Stephen Hawking, some perilous falls, some epic fails and more information about Lee's private life than you probably need.

This is the wickedly funny story of the stand-up who struggles to stand up, but who learns to finds his feet. The Geordie without the accent. The entertainer who really can't speak at all, but who has something important to say.

- 'Hilarious.' The Sun- 'A unique and brilliant comic voice.' Ross Noble
