In this hilariously frank account of his life, Jack Dee finally reveals what turned a once optimistic young man into this grumpy middle-aged git. It's a journey that takes him from a first gig as a ventriloquist's dummy, to working in an artificial leg factory and delivering incontinence pads for the NHS, before he finally ends up on stage at the Comedy Store. Along the way, Jack shares his laugh-out-loud views on everything from the 'overrated moon landing' to boutique hotels, personal trainers and 'people who hold their cutlery the wrong way'. Outrageous, absurd, and full of surprises, this is Jack Dee at his funniest.

Ideal for schools, shops, nursing homes, leisure centres, hotels, banks, GP surgeries, reception desks and many other private, public and civic applications.Induction loop systems are used to help hearing impaired people obtain maximum involvement in communications. The concept behind them is simple. All NHS hearing aids have a T position which allows them to pick up electromagnetic field generated by a telephones earpiece and convert it into a sound suited to an individuals specific hearing requirements. A loop system uses this same principle but generates a much larger field than that created by a telephone earpiece and radiates it around a room via a loop fofr the benefit of any hearing impaired person(s) located within it. An induction loop system therefore comprises four main elements:- the audio source (microphone and /or music inputs), the amplifier (specially designed for the job), the loop (usually a single turn of wire) and receiver(s) (hearing aids in the T position of specifically made listening devices).

We got everything but the balcony - not an easy find in Seville apparently (at least not with our other criteria).
We ended up at the NH Plaza de Armas, Seville.
