'Phil Cool - Stand Up Chameleon'
In his autobiography Phil takes us on a journey from his childhood, through the years of trying to get the big break in the world of showbiz, to his life as the country's top impressionist and onwards through the years of entertaining audiences around the world's theatres and stages. Filled with hilarious anecdotes and observations this is a book that is very much the voice of Phil Cool and as unique in so many ways.
This is not just a fascinating, funny and philosophical memoir but a rumination on the ephemeral nature of comedy itself. We hear how TV shows are made, or aren't made, the temptation to The Other Side by glittering promises that evaporate like leprechaun's gold, how it's not always enough to have talent, and to sweat terrible venues and hostile crowds; a synchronicity of time and place can catalyse the perfect gig or spark a career. There are snapshots of the creative process using reconstructions of routines, bold experiments ahead of their time, tantalising concepts. Tales of tragedy, laugh-out-loud farce and the vampire that is television are told with self-deprecating humour and honesty, a bittersweet story without bitterness. Most of all it's a warm reminder for anyone who has seen Phil Cool in his element that given some time in a darkened room he can make you very happy.
