Harry Hill
presents Matt Millz

The youngest stand-up
comedian in the world?

Matt Millz

Open with your best gag. Finish with your second best.
Make sure your face matches the material.
Sell your routine…

Matt Millz loves stand-up comedy. He’s studied the best. He’s memorized all the advice. He spends hours writing new gags and thinking up crazy sketches… So when the school run a talent contest, of course he’s going to enter.

Matt Millz

What he doesn’t count on is:
• Last minute total meltdown
• His best mate pulling out zero seconds before going on
• Teeny tiny Kitty Hope and her own bonkers ambitions
• His stepdad’s own ‘funny’ ideas
• And headmaster, Meredith Pavey, who very definitely has it in for him.

Matt Millz

Harry Hill is a BAFTA-winning comedian and world-class swingball player. Born in Woking in 1964, he holds a medical degree from the University of London. His books include Flight from Deathrow and Tim the Tiny Horse. He has been a stand-up since the early 90s, and TV shows he’s created and starred in include Harry Hill’s TV Burp and Harry Hill’s Alien Fun Capsule, while he’s also the voice of You’ve Been Framed.

Matt Millz

“Strangely and funnily enough, probably the definitive book about being a stand-up comedian.” – Jack Dee

“I like this book because it’s funny, fascinating …and I’m in it.” – Jo Brand

“A funny and brilliant book by a comic genius.” – Matt Lucas
