How I Escaped My Certain Fate

(2010)
A non fiction book by

 
 
This title was written by darling of the broadsheets, irritant to "The Mail on Sunday" and officially one of the 20 with the tag 'the comedian's comedian'. In this, his first work of non-fiction, he presents the texts of the three stand-up shows he wrote and performed between 2004 and 2008, with notes and commentary, anecdote and autobiographical detail where relevant. It also includes the fallout from his contribution to "Jerry Springer: The Opera". "How I Escaped My Certain Fate" is an illuminating and original look at performance and the craft of stand-up. It offers a rare glimpse into the world of Lee, whose work inspires the most histrionic critical praise for its unflinching subject material and stylistic approach.
