Best foot forward

Hills, Adam2018
Adam Hills was a quiet primary school kid with a prosthetic foot who did all his homework and only spoke when spoken to. But when he did speak, he made sure he was funny. His love of comedy started early on listening to the likes of Peter Sellers and Mel Brooks with his dad. By high school, while his mates were listening to Iron Maiden and AC/DC, he was listening to Kenny Everett and Billy Connolly; whilst they snuck off to meet girls, he snuck off to see a young Jim Carrey perform. His first stand-up open mic night was on his 19th birthday. Adam shares all these stories, from his early gigs with Steady Eddy and Jimeoin, how he coped the first time he died on stage, his early-morning apprenticeship in radio to touring the world’s comedy festivals, the magic of Spicks and Specks, hosting the 2008 Paralympics and his hit UK TV show The Last Leg. This charming and witty memoir by one of Australia's biggest comic personality offers a lesson in following your heart, hard-work, staying positive and discovering that what makes you different also makes you unique.
