DetailsTo celebrate the launch of his eye-popping frank memoirs ?Becoming Johnny Vegas', which Michael traces the birth of the alter-ego who made him a comedy star, culminating in his triumphant appearance at the 1997 Edinburgh festival, where he won the critics award and was the first newcomer ever to be nominated for the Perrier. From BBC Dickens adaptations to Benidorm and Ideal to the PG Tips ads, Johnny Vegas has become one of Britain's best-loved comic actors. But before he'd ever drunk tea with a knitted monkey or made himself the exception that proves the rule in terms of the predictability of TV panel game regulars, Johnny Vegas was perhaps the most fearlessly confessional stand-up comedian this country has ever produced.
