<p><b>From brutal schooldays to 80s anarchy, through <i>The Young Ones </i>and beyond, <i>Berserker! </i>is the one-of-a-kind, fascinating memoir from an icon of British comedy, Adrian Edmondson.</b><br><br><i>Berserk</i>: out of control with anger or excitement; wild or frenzied.<br><br><i>Berserkers</i>: an elite Norse fighting corp who, apparently off their tits on hallucinogenic drugs, fought with a particular fury and senseless abandon still present in many Scandinavian heavy metal groups.<br><br>Ade Edmondson smashed onto the comedy circuit in the 1980s, stormed The Comedy Store and, alongside Rik Mayall, brought anarchy to stage and screen. How did a child brought up in a strict Methodist household &ndash; and who spent his formative years incarcerated in repressive boarding schools &ndash; end up joining the revolution? Well, he is part Norse. Could it be his berserker heritage?<br><br>With wisdom, nostalgia and uniquely observed humour, Ade traces his journey through life and comedy: starting out on the alternative scene, getting arrested in Soho, creating his outrageously violent characters and learning more about his curious (possibly Scandinavian) heritage. With star-studded anecdotes and set to a soundtrack of pop hits which transport the reader through time, it&rsquo;s a memoir like no other.</p>
