I'm a big fan of Daisy May Cooper and the wonderful This Country, and picked up Don't Laugh, It'll Only Encourage Her in an Audible deal. This audiobook is narrated by Daisy May Cooper and includes an exclusive, bonus interview with Daisy and her Dad, Paul Cooper. I know it's supposed to make me laugh, but I just felt so very sad for Daisy May and her family - growing up in chaos, dealing with loss and severe financial worries. Her strength, courage and determination to succeed shines through this, under the protection of her signature hysterical, and eye watering humor.

This book proves it’s absurd for anybody to think they know more about being funny than Daisy May Cooper. And just how much of a humiliating, ridiculous, screw-up of a s**t-storm life did I need to lead before I could finally realise my dream? Some of the situations she got herself into when she was younger and the way she recounts it are a pick me up tonic full of laughter you never knew you needed! I've always had an over-active imagination and felt the urge to be a massive f**king show-off so acting seemed like the obvious choice of career.T he funniest memoir of 2021, written by the most relatable woman in the world - Daisy May Cooper, creator and star of BBC's award-winning comedy This Country. Mum, I spent all my student loan accidently on a penthouse suite in a fancy hotel in Marble Arch, now I face getting kicked out of drama school. One of the most hilarious books I’ve read - so many anecdotes I was nearly crying with laughter on the train. She won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Female Comedy Performance in 2018 for her role as Kerry Mucklowe in the BBC Three series This Country, a mockumentary-style show about the eccentricities of life in rural England, which she co-created and co-wrote with her brother, Charlie Cooper. Daisy May manages to convey the brutal reality of living in poverty, feeling hopeless and desperately trying to make it with her dream career without what you’re reading being completely fucking harrowing.

Life hasn't always been straightforward for Daisy May Cooper: growing up in rural poverty in Gloucestershire with her brother Chaz, she had to work a myriad of low-paid and unrewarding jobs just to make ends meet.Having no empathy or any sort of kindness, or understanding (even in retrospect) for the boy whom she met through a chat room, who had not told her about his disability, and then whom she did not speak to for the entire weekend he stayed (parents really, he slept in her room? This book starts off amazing and until about 3/4 of the way through stays consistently funny (I’m still thinking about that showcase in under the pub) but I can’t help but feel the last few chapters were really rushed! I expect hearing the author telling the stories would be very different, but reading them on a page left me desperately sorry that she and her family had been through so much. There are so many mad crazy experiences in the book that I did, on occasion, question whether not they could all really be true.
