Is It Just Me?by Miranda Hart
Synopses & Reviews
An all-access VIP backstage pass to the award-winning cult British sitcom Miranda
Well hello to you, Dear Book Peruser, and thank you for your kind interest in my book o'Miranda. Here you will find my favorite six scripts, hand-picked from all three series, with introductions by moi, and some other tit-bits, and silliness. Because no book of this ilk should be without tit-bits and silliness. If nothing else it's fun to say tit-bits. Repeat after me: tit-bits. You're welcome. I hope you enjoy seeing the scripts in their pure written form on the page before they translated to what you have seen on screen. And if you're a lovely young person still at school, let me know if your drama teacher ever lets you do an episode for the school play. Nothing would make me happier. Though I bagsy play Miranda.
Miranda Hart has won bundles of awards, written a book, and completed a sell-out tour in the UK. But it was her award-winning BBC sitcom Miranda which first made her a much-loved household name. Miranda's identifiable and loveable character, unique wit, and physical comedy struck a chord with millions, making the show a national institution and Miranda the "Queen of Comedy." Here Miranda gives readers an access-all-areas VIP backstage pass to Miranda. This book contains the full scripts of Miranda's six favorite episodes (including her original revises and annotations) so that you can, if you wish to, cast your family to re-enact choice moments in your living room. The book also includes Miranda's own account of just what goes in to the process of writing, rehearsing, and filming, hilarious gossip from the making of the sitcom, previously unpublished photographs, and material which didn't make the final edits. Other extras include recipes for Gary's favorite cakes, cringe-worthy childhood photos of our favorite comedian, a step-by-step guide to making your own Fruit Friends and Vegetapals, and a Marry Gary Board Game. This is a beautiful and hilarious book which will delight Miranda's many fans and earn her many new ones.
Comedian Miranda Hart laments on the horrors of growing up and offers her younger self some essential advice on grappling with life's unexpected perils and blunders
Well hello to you, dear browser. Now that I have your attention, it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me, or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination, and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? Does everybody struggle with the hazards that accompany, say, sitting elegantly on a bar stool; using chopsticks; pretending to understand the bank crisis; pedicures—surely it's plain wrong for a stranger to fondle your feet? Or is it just me? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences—from school days to life as an office temp—and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you too, dear reader) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path. Because frankly, where is the manual? The much needed manual to life. Well, fret not, for this is my attempt at one, and let's call it, because it's fun, a Miran-ual. I thank you.
