Thanks For Nothing

In this hilariously frank account of his life, Jack Dee finally reveals what turned a once optimistic young man into this grumpy middle-aged git.It's a journey that takes him from a first gig as a ventriloquist’s dummy, to working in an artificial leg factory and delivering incontinence pads for the NHS, before he finally ends up on stage at the Comedy Store.Along the way, Jack shares his laugh-out-loud views on everything from the ‘overrated moon landing’ to boutique hotels, personal trainers and ‘people who hold their cutlery the wrong way’.
Outrageous, absurd, and full of surprises, this is Jack Dee at his funniest.
