Stand Up and Deliver Audio Book

Full Product Description

Andy Kind is an award-winning comedian and author. In over a decade on the circuit he has performed over 1500 gigs, won awards, appeared on BBC 1, ITV and Channel 4, and had his material used on Dave's One Night Stand and Live at the Apollo.

Stand Up and Deliver is the story of where it all started: the highly entertaining account of a young man's first year as a rookie comedian. The book starts with Andy's first ever attempt at stand-up, and we then follow him through the next twelve months, encountering the giddying highs and excruciating lows of life on the comedy circuit.

Full of joy, laughs, tears and weirdos, it is more than simply a diary about doing comedy. It is, more importantly, a tale about what happens when someone tries to follow their childhood ambitions and realise their deepest hopes.

Stand Up and Deliver Audio Book by Andy Kind was published by Elevation in April 2015 and is our 38344th best seller. The ISBN for Stand Up and Deliver Audio Book is ELE2075D.

Publisher's Description

"Walking down the flight of steps to the comedy club, I shuffled past the healthy line of punters waiting to get in. A woman with a cash-box accosted me.

'Can I help you?' she asked

In reply, I asserted something that, over 1000 gigs later, still feels a bit odd and a bit beautiful:

'I'm one of the comedians.'

I was a virgin, a newbie, a rookie: an island of panic in a sea of certainty and self-assurance. Amidst all the happy banter, rib-tickling and general joviality, I had never felt more lonely or quite as stranded....

After years of searching, I had finally found the thing in life I was best at."

Andy Kind provides a charming narrative of the highs and lows he has experienced as a comedian. Stand Up and Deliver will introduce you to the pain, terror, and the overall joy of performing stand up comedy.

Ultimately, the book has more depth than simply being a rookie's diary on the comedy circuit: it is the story of a young man trying to fulfill his childhood dreams.
