First I'll take you back to my schooldays and reveal the technique I developed for estimating the height of a girl before daring to ask her to dance. I'll explain how I first met David Frost, John Cleese and Michael Palin, and shamelessly reveal how I once played Othello to Danny La Rue's Desdemona, having just had dinner with Laurence Olivier. I'll also tell you about the time I was suddenly struck down by a mysterious illness that destroyed my sense of balance and prevented me from going on stage for several years.
Altogether I must admit, it is a truly dramatic story. I only hope my mother won't be too shocked!

Ronnie Corbett reads his autobiography, first published in 2000.
He is a pleasant enough companion as he recounts his (mostly) fortunate life. No skeletons in cupboards here.
I listen to most of my audiobooks more than once, but won't bother with this one. It's not that it's bad, it's just a bit 'beige'.

Although very interesting, I found that there was a distinct lack of chronology though out the book. Jumping around from chapter to chapter.
The most disappointing and annoying part however, was the recording. The audio seemed to be fading in and out at times and this made it very difficult to listen to at times. Plus, the occasional musical interludes just left me confused.
