Publisher's Summary

In the most important theatrical audiobook of this or any other decade, twitter sensation @tips4actors gives you all the advice you need to take your acting to the next level. How to upstage your fellow cast members, what to wear on the first day of rehearsals, where to go for a poo in London's glamorous West End - it's all covered in here! Includes advice such as...'Never read the script. Would your character read it? No, of course not. For them the script doesn't exist' and 'When having sex with a casting director, show off your acting by faking an orgasm'.
With bonus content made especially for the audiobook such as a full vocal warm up and advice on accents and radio acting, this is a hilarious parody which demands to be heard.

Hilarious but...

Its really hilarious and i cracked up a lot of times.However i was expecting an acting technique book based on its title which its not, its more of a farce in the name of it.Would have given 5 stars if title would not have misled me.

Needed more Fergus Craig

Hi, I'm not an actor but I know one and he could definitely use some of Fergus Craig's tips. Speaking of tips, I deducted one star because there are too darn many "top tips," I mean, it's in the name. "Top tip" implies only one is the tops!

So although I'm not an actor and I'm sure I can benefit from Fergus' lessons to build confidence or how to turn a phrase for my benefit, I really downloaded this because last week when Fergus skipped an episode of podcast Newcastle Natter so he could star as a customer in a Swedish post office commercial clearly giving credence to his status as an actual working actor, and remembering a couple months back he shamelessly plugged this audiobook, I figured if I downloaded this selection with a spare Audible credit I could make it an extra week until he responsibly returned to what should surely be his priority, the Newcastle Natter. Also, with his English accent when he uses the word "psychophantic," which he used at least twice, so clearly he is super smart.
