Chances are if you opened Facebook in the last three years you experienced the screeching ball of profanity, blonde wigs and sexual innuendo that is Christian Hull.
Now Hull has told his story in memoir Leave Me Alone, a no holds barred account of his life and also his rise to fame.
Almost overnight, the radio producer turned internet sensation after amassing a whopping 1,000,000+ followers.
Then, across multiple social media platforms, he turned his fame into a thriving and successful business. It all started with his alter ego ‘Trish,’ the angry and very much over-it mum.
But his empire expanded into stand up comedy, internet novelty products and also pretty much anything he can flog to make a dollar.
Enter Leave Me Alone, the comedian’s debut book. Aggressively honest, Christian tells his story in three parts. Firstly, his childhood, then his journey through his radio career, and of course, his sex life.
Surprisingly, for a man who hates people, Christian recounts a childhood and upbringing as warm as it is kind.
He grew up the eldest of four boys, with the other three all exactly the same age – triplets. That leads to many an entertaining story as Christian fights to maintain the spotlight within his own family.
Laugh out loud moments also litter the memoir and stories literally leap from the page. From the devastating moment his mother returns home with three brothers, to Christian’s later fascination with the local flasher, nothing is off-limits.
