MORE than 500 fans queued for several hours to meet and get their books signed by comedy star Michael 
McIntyre.

He appeared at Waterstone’s book store in Bluewater shopping centre on Thursday to sign copies of his autobiography Life And Laughing from 5.30pm with guests arriving from 8.30am.

Sian Cooper, 15, from Borough Green, in Sevenoaks, was among the first to meet the BAFTA- nominated comedian during the half-term.

Harpreet Kaur, senior bookseller at the store, said: “I can’t believe we had Michael visiting our store. He is without a doubt the best comedian on television at the 
moment.

“His autobiography should be an hilarous read.”

In his autobiography he reveals his showbusiness roots, appalling attempts to attract the opposite sex, his move from public to state school and his journey from selling one ticket at the Edinburgh Festival to half-a-million tickets on his latest tour.

Last year the stand-up comedian sold out a record six nights at Wembley Arena and four nights at London’s O2 and currently appears on BBC1 with his show the Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow.

He was born in south London in 1976. His parents were both in show business, his Hungarian mother a dancer and his Canadian father co-wrote The Kenny Everett Television Show. He lives in north London with his wife Kitty and their sons Lucas and Oscar.

Life And Laughing is published by Penguin/Michael Joseph and costs £20.
