Publisher's Summary

Jo Brand tells the story of how she crawled to fame and fortune, managed to persuade someone to marry her and had some children at an age when she should have been in a bath chair on a seafront. In this second volume of her memoirs, Jo recounts wild times on the comedy circuit, the attempts to tart her up for the TV screen, running the marathon, rally driving, her numerous, occasionally extremely inebriated, Edinburgh festival appearances, her 'acting' career and much, much more.

Jo's autobiography

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This was not as funny as the first volume of Jo's autobiography , but was still an enjoyable read, this is all about her efforts to be a stand up comic and some of the clubs she has played at good and very bad ! You have to have a thick skin to be an actress or comic it is not a career for the faint hearted. I love Jo's down to earth views on everything, especially the way she really doesnt care that much about her appearance,what a difference from some of the shallow stars of today !!

Couldn't Stop Listening, oh, and PANTY LINERs haha

Would you listen to Can't Stand Up For Sitting Down again? Why?

I listened to this in the car on a long journey down south along with the other of Jo's audiobooks on here. I have to say, I enjoyed them both so much and she did make me chuckle as always. Full of interesting anecdotes as her interesting story is told. I love Jo, and her story, narrated beautifully in typical joyous 'Jo' style was a pleasure to listen to. I think she's awesome. I listen to her reading more stuff actually. She just makes me smile. Jo is great and her story is really interesting.

What did you like best about this story?

Jo is great and her story is really interesting.

What does Jo Brand bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I love the way she delivers the story...whilst I could imagine her when reading, it was great to be able to listen in the car and make my journey seem like minutes rather than hours.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

More from Jo please!!
