‘A must-read if you like funny things’ Greg James

‘I had no idea Pat Sharp’s life story would be so hilarious and I strongly suspect neither did he’ Nish Kumar

Pat Sharp is a man out of time.

For those of a certain generation, he is an iconic figure synonymous with good fun, great hair and excess gunge. For others, he’s just that bloke with a mullet.

Fame is a fickle beast and, since the cancellation of Fun House in 1999 (‘Just ten years into its run, when it was finally finding its feet’), Pat has become a reclusive figure, only emerging from his splendid isolation to pop up on things like I’m A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Come Dine with Me.

Until now.

With time on his hands and now reliant on a faulty memory, Pat has expertly blended fact and . . . fiction: revealing all about his adventures with David Hassselhoff at the Berlin Wall in 1989; how he broke up a fight between Damon Albarn and Liam Gallagher at a house party; the time he suggested Geri’s dress be a Union Jack; and much more.

A definitive work (based on very little fact) that anatomises the cultural trends of the ’80s and ’90s, Re-run the Fun is just the kind of sorta-biography we need in these turbulent times. Finally, the Great British public can learn what life is like just about in sight of the top – the highs, the lows and the hair tips.

‘It’s easy to forget, as I had, that Pat Sharp is so much more than an iconic haircut and a helter-skelter – and this well overdue book goes into hilarious, largely-fabricated detail about Pat’s critical role in shaping our world today’ Rick Edwards

‘No previous knowledge of Pat Sharp is required’ Paul Sinha

Reviews

A very funny book
Boyd Hilton
Hilarious, racy and largely untrue . . . one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. Not just amusing but packed with gags

Anything Pat Sharp related is always fun. This book is relative to that fun. Read it and get some of that fun! Cos it's fun!
Keith Lemon
A brutal, searing and vital dissemination of our times. Sharp has written a brave, eloquent tome that provides a way forward for future generations
Matt Lucas
My sister Jess and I dreamt of being on Fun House as kids so this book was the next best thing and it didn't disappoint. I'm still laughing now!
Mark Wright
Funny, mad, brilliant. I laughed a lot
Lisa McGee (writer of Derry Girls)
This is precision humour. It's very funny and no previous knowledge of Pat Sharp is required
Paul Sinha
A funny relief from the dumpster fire that is 2020
GQ
There are some books that will be around forever. Perfect examples of literary genius. But this book is just about Pat Sharp
Chris Moyles
Fabulous book . . . wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone . . . genuinely laugh out loud . . . twice as good as Partridge . . . perfect book for Christmas
Bob Mills
A loving account of the life and times of an enigma wrapped inside a mullet. This is a must-read if you like funny things
Greg James
Hilarious, light-hearted, joyous and uplifting. A shiny jewel in what's been a murky year
