Berserker! : The riotous, one-of-a-kind memoir from one of Britain's most beloved comedians

£19.80 £22.00

Berserk: out of control with anger or excitement; wild or frenzied.

Berserkers: an elite Norse fighting corp who are apparently off their tits on hallucinogenic drugs and fight with a particular fury and senseless abandon which is still evident in many Scandinavian heavy metal groups to this day. How did a child brought up in a conservative Christian household - and who spent his formative years incarcerated in repressive boarding schools - end up getting arrested in SoHo as part of the 1980s alternative comedy scene and revolutionizing the genre with his outrageously violent characters? Could it be his Norse (10% berserker) heritage?

Berserker! is Ade Edmondson's story, told for the very first time. Full of wisdom, nostalgia and uniquely observed humour; with reflections on the 1980-1990s alternative comedy scene and his own curious (possibly Scandinavian?) family background interwoven with star-studded anecdotes and set to a soundtrack of pop hits which transport the reader through time, it's a memoir like no other.
