i, Kunt - the autobiography of Kunt and the Gang

£30,325

1,069

For those of you who have never heard of us before:  
'i, Kunt' is the autobiography of the award-winning* comedy act Kunt and the Gang; the unique story of how a bloke from Essex rode the social media boom to make the transformation from Council odd job man into minor internet superstar (and nemesis of Enrique Iglesias).

For those of you who have heard of us before:It's me, Kunt here. What started with writing down a few of the more harrowing and grim stories from my touring years has ended up as a full-blown autobiography, taking in everything from the first day I heard the 'kunt' word, through the highs of my unlikely forays into the lower reaches of the UK charts and the lows of the Edinburgh Fringe 'cockgate' scandal, right up to the final gig. 

"So why are you doing a crowd-funder, Kunt?" Well, I'll tell you. My dwindling pot of cash from the final tour has long since dwindled and I've been back painting and decorating for the last year. The book is so close to being finished but I'm struggling to find enough time or funds to get it printed and the audio book recorded properly. Hence, here I am, cap in hand asking you to kuntribute to the project and help me get it over the line.

For everyone:
'i, Kunt' is an extraordinary tale about trying to stay true to your principles whilst dressed head to toe in hi-vis, pretending to cry and masturbate.

*the Malcolm Hardee 'Cunning Stunt' Award, i.e. not an award for being funny, or any good.

Risks and challenges

I think the main challenge if this project is successful is to get the books printed quickly and out to everyone in time for Christmas without falling foul of a light-fingered temporary seasonal Royal Mail recruit.

If the project is successful I will pull a sicky from any further decorating commitments until the new year to spend all my time ensuring rewards are fulfilled in plenty of time for Christmas.
