About the Book

Under the Microscope is the life story of one of the nation's favourite funny men, Dave Spikey. In this book, fans will be given an insight into the man behind the comedy. Centred around his personal experiences growing up and living in Lancashire, this funny memoir is filled with touching and laugh-out-loud anecdotes and family stories, from his childhood and adolescence, through his school days, to his first job and his medical career at Bolton General Hospital, as well as his early days in the crazy world of professional comedy. Self-deprecating, revelatory and told with real heart, this is an unmissable book not only for Dave's legions of fans, but also for aficionados of comedy and the North of England alike.
