Amusing, but really not that alarming

Going Off Alarming: The Autobiography: Vol 2 by Danny Baker

The dazzlingly funny second volume of Danny Baker’s memoirs: the television years.

Since my first book was published I have had countless friends and family members get in touch to say how come I hadn’t included this story or that tale. Was I ashamed of being shot twice, once up the arse, in Jamaica Road? How long should a man live with such a secret? If by retrospectively dropping my trousers every few pages I can reveal a fuller picture of myself during these years, then so be it.

Besides. Being shot up the arse. In front of your mates.

What else did he forget? Loads, and there’s undoubtedly plenty more to come. A couple of years after eventually getting to the first volume, I finally got round to volume 2. There are some laugh out load moments, a great set of stories involving the dog, Twizzle, and just lots of entertaining anecdotes from the world of Baker (plus the yarn about being shot up the arse). I have to say I found the final chunk of the book, focused on Paul Gascoigne, really not that interesting though.
