Don't Laugh, It'll Only Encourage Her

Author: Daisy May Cooper Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/10/2021

'When I'm up on stage, I don't want to be anywhere else in the world' Since I was little, I've had a cast of characters living inside my head, an over-active imagination and the urge to be a massive f**king show-off. Not only was my family completely insane, but we grew up battling rural poverty, and together with my brother Charlie, I staggered my way through adolescence like a p**sed-up butterfly. In Don't Laugh, It'll Only Encourage Her, I'll take you on a rollercoaster ride so extreme it'll make you laugh, then cry, then barf your guts up. From my misspent childhood skulking around car boot sales to reimagining WWE Smackdowns for a Cirencester audience; from my one-armed internet boyfriend to a lover who doubled as a coat-stand; from snogging a pole at a lap-dancing audition to imitating a warthog at RADA to finally having This Country commissioned by the BBC. And, I answer all of life's great mysteries . . . Can wall plaster be part of your five-a-day? Can the afterlife be found in the back of a sh**ty pub? How do you give your tits added drama? Who dropped the monster turd at the fake audition? How much of a humiliating, ridiculous, screw-up of a sh**-storm life do you need to have led before you finally achieve your dream . . . ?
