Publisher's Summary

In Toast on Toast - part memoir, part "how to act" manual - Steven Toast draws on his vast and varied experiences, providing the reader with an invaluable insight into his journey from school plays to RADA and from "It's a Right Royal Knockout" to the Colony Club.

Along the way he reveals the secrets of his success. He discloses how to brush up on and expand your technical and vocal skills, how to nail a professional voiceover, and how to deal with difficult work experience staff in a recording studio. He also reveals the dangers of typecasting, describes the often ruthless struggle for 'top billing', and shares many awesome nuggets of advice.

The end result is a book that will inspire and educate anyone who wants to tread the floorboards. It will also inform (and entertain) anybody who simply wants to discover what a jobbing actor's life is actually like.

Absolutely hilarious!

Would you consider the audio edition of Toast on Toast to be better than the print version?

Yes, definitely! I tried to read the print edition, but it falls flat without the voice of Matt Berry as Steven Toast. He could even make the phone book sound funny!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I had to listen to this book twice in a row, as I laughed so much the first time round, I missed a lot of the jokes. If you enjoy the TV show 'Toast of London' you will love this audiobook.

Matt Berry’s voice makes this

Stephen Toast is a wonderfully wrought character. Some of the stories seem a bit lacking, but overall it was delightfully funny.

I really should put my glasses on before selecting audiobooks

This was clearly not a book about making toasts. My jaw fell so often l just couldn’t stop listening to the completely politically incorrect content of Steven Toast. The poignant hypocrisy, the insane events, the outrageous imagination are a must listen. I can’t say l laughed but l did that uncomfortable giggle so often you could have mistaken it for laughter. Who makes up this stuff?

This will only appeal to older British men/women

It's crass, trashy but funny very occasionally, due to his voice (it sounded like he was the umpire at Wimbledon. Seriously, the plummy voice.... whatever rubbish came out of the writer/narrators mouth, sounded as if he was voicing a dodgy tennis match, which sounded hilarious.) He was a walking talking parody of people around him..

In this audio book, the amount of name dropping about people he hung out with and did drugs with in the 60's, 70's, 80's is eye opening, in a weird hilarious way. He used the c*** word over and over which made me cringe. I can't believe the posh upper class, wealthy white Brits think that this highly offensive and sexist C word is amusing.

I only listened as it was $4.99, but that was way too much for some regurgitated content, I could've got for free on soc.med. for free. I'd like that 3hrs of listening of my life back.

Missed the mark

Don't get me wrong: I loved Toast of London, but three hours straight of the gag without any offsiders didn't work for me. Couldn't finish it, as much as I admire Matt Berry's commitment to the bit. Clem Fandango's audio production was amazing though.

Bravo

An absolute tour de force from UK theatre's enfant terrible. Read with a cadence rarely heard.
