For those of a certain generation, Pat Sharp is an iconic figure synonymous with good fun, great hair and gunge. For others he’s just that bloke with a mullet. Fame is a fickle beast and, since the final Fun House aired in 2000, Pat has become a reclusive figure, only emerging from his ivory tower to pop up on things like I’m a Celebrity, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Celebrity Coach Trip, Pointless Celebrities, Through the Keyhole, and Celebrity Come Dine with Me.
Re-run the Fun will blend fact and fiction in a manner reminiscent of I, Partridge and Me Cheeta. It will guide the reader from a dingy Radio 1 studio to David Hasselhoff atop the Berlin Wall; from Fun House to breaking up a fight between Damon and Liam at a (fun) house party; from presenting Top of the Pops to the time he suggested Geri’s dress be a Union Jack; to masterminding (and acting as support) at the now-legendary Bros revival gigs; and much, much more. Pat has the scars, and the photos, to prove it all.
A definitive work that anatomises the cultural trends of the 80s and 90s, Re-Run the Fun harks back to a time when life was purer and simpler. And, finally, the Great British public can learn what life is like as Pat Sharp; the highs, the lows, the hair tips, the endless selfies.
