About this deal

please don't start reading this book expecting it to be a laugh a minute, because you'll be bitterly disappointed. However, the hardback printed book shows lots of previously unseen photographs, plus copies of old school text books and random drawings.

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. Daisy and Charlie are contracted to do a cleaning job for three hours, but manage to do it in 20 minutes. 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. She came across well on Taskmaster, I find her really funny and loved This Country, especially coming from the same rural area I totally get it all, but this book does nothing to make me think she’s a particularly decent or kind person. I’m going to decide to take it all with a pinch of salt, otherwise I’ll end up thinking a lot less of her than I did.Don't Laugh, It'll Only Encourage Her is the endearingly honest and hilarious memoir from the creator and star of award-winning BBC comedy This Country. Wrote in a way that’s funny but also very truthful about the struggles Daisy faced breaking into the industry. Having read Bob Mortimers book recently that has a lot of similar stories but told with much more heart this book just didn't gel for me.

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.It made me laugh out loud and at times it was heart breaking to read about the financial situation the family was in and the poverty they endured. I've since watched all three seasons of This County three times through again and I've been so excited waiting for the book to land. This audio version also has the added bonus of an exclusive interview with Daisy and her father Paul.
