What the F*** Did I Do Last Night?: The Memoir of an Accidental Comedian

    By

    At 17, Rowland Rivron had already fulfilled his ambitions as a professional drummer gigging in London's West End. All that changed in the 1980s when he fell in with the new and anarchic 'alternative comedians'. Alongside Rik Mayall, Ade Edmondson, Alexei Sayle and others, he appeared in such culturally defining shows as "The Comic Strip Presents", "The Young Ones", "The Tube" and of course "French & Saunders", where he appeared as the charismatic Duane, one half of the inimitable Raw Sex. But the real story is what went on behind the scenes because, possessing the constitution of an ox, he fast got reputation as a party animal and loose cannon. When he wasn't having penalty shoot-outs with Diana Ross in her Ritz suite or upsetting countless Hollywood stars, he could be found cycling down the staircase of the Groucho Club or setting fire to himself for money. Wherever he went there was bound to be trouble, hilarity and an eye-watering bar bill. In "What the F*** Did I Do Last Night?" he bares his soul and quite a lot else in a tale of hilarious encounters, death-defying escapades and shameless unprofessionalism. You have to read it to believe it.
