Surprisingly Down to Earth, and Very Funny: My Autobiography
About this deal
I always wondered if I was schizophrenic... Maybe just an overactive imagination. My mind likes to come up wi lots of thoughts and ideas, whether or no they're useful or make sense. I think that sort of thing can make you mental, depending on how severe it is and what kind of environment you're in. Fortunately I managed to find a place to put my kind of mind to good use. I've always liked Limmy's stuff, I found it quite surprising how relatable limmy actually is. I don't know what I expected to be honest but I didn't expect to actually have enjoyed this book as much as I did. It's about being strange in a normal, subclinical* way: intrusive thoughts, groundless anxiety, reduced affect display, auditory hallucination, mild paranoia, misanthropy, hysteroid dysphoria.
it's not a completely encyclopedic look at his life, but does go from his first memories, to school, college/uni, jobs and relationships and some of the mishaps inbetween all along to even writing the book itself. He is a member of famous Comedian with the age 49 years old group. Limmy Height, Weight & Measurements Harriett recommends a noir novel in the same vein as Chandler - The Expendable Man by Dorothy B Hughes who did not receive the same acclaim even though she was writing at the same time and also had books optioned and made into Hollywood movies.
A WOMAN who accused Scots comedian Limmy of being “racist” has been brutally trolled after failing to get one of his jokes. In that Lloyd Cole review, which you can see Limmy talking about on his youtube channel, Lloyd Cole said maybe one reason he didn't get into the book was because he didn't know Limmy's work when he read it, and that much makes sense. If you are a fan of Limmy you will get much more from this than someone who doesn't know him. Personally, I am a huge fan of "Limmy's Show", so when he starts talking about the "Millport" sketch or the "Yoker" sketch I know exactly what he is talking about and found it fascinating to see the genesis of the ideas behind these sketches and how they came to be made. If you are not a fan, that may be less interesting, though you can always watch the sketches on youtube as you are reading.
I need to write 15 words here but I don't know what to say other than that this is the most honest I've heard anyone be that's in the public eye. This is a refreshing read/listen in that way - Almost every other book with mental health as a cornerstone would try and offer some kind of help or explanation (nothing wrong with that at all, mind you) but in this Limmy just exposes it for the strange and maddening experience it can be and how it has defined certain moments or periods in his life. Limmy gives us a frank insight into some of his history and the coinciding battles and experiences with his mental health. Some of it is quite scary to hear but it is always dashed with some dark humour in the traditional Limmy way. it's definitely a very interesting read and I certainly recommend the audiobook version of not just this book but all of his previous books - It always adds a extra level of depth to hear him speak the words, and he's brilliant at it.I could have guessed that he'd had a life like this from his characters; so much authentic idiocy, lunacy, awkwardness, pretension, and pettiness. Surprised that Dee-Dee is based on his own trippy blankness; Limmy's so sharp these days.
I know several people with the same mix of terrible impulses and good intentions, charisma and anti-social solitude: folk whose adolescence lasted twenty years. They're the funniest people I know, by far. I don't know how class comes into it, but they're all working-class. Maybe middle-class people as strange as them direct it inward, rather than outward as comedy or violence. (They're also all Scots but that's a selection effect, I hope.) At 49 years old, Limmy height not available right now. We will update Limmy's Height, weight, Body Measurements, Eye Color, Hair Color, Shoe & Dress size soon as possible. I said to them, oh, I don’t know if I could fill a whole book with just that. But how’s about I write a general autobiography type of thing, and all the mental health stuff will naturally appear along the way? I could talk about growing up and slashing my wrist and taking acid all the time and getting done for car theft and feeling like a mad freak that would never amount to anything.Limmy (Brian Limond) was born on 20 October, 1974 in Glasgow, United Kingdom, is a Comedian, actor, screenwriter, producer, musician, author, podcaster, streamer.
