Waterstones Says

Suffused with a warm wit and endearing honesty, this memoir from one of British comedy’s brightest stars details a tough childhood in rural poverty and Cooper’s eventual recognition as a special comic talent with the success of This Country.

When things were really bad, Mum would always say to me:

'Don't worry, it will be a good read for your memoir one day.'

I suppose that's a weird way of coping, isn't it? Trying to turn the bleakest situation into a positive.

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, unrewarding jobs just to make ends meet. Don't Laugh, It Will Only Encourage Her is the endearingly honest and hilarious memoir from the creator and star of award-winning BBC comedy This Country.

Hilarious, brutally honest and very entertaining. Bloody brilliant, like the woman herself * Heat *
Cooper is casual and caustic as she looks at the bright side and the darker underbelly of showbiz * The Times *
This book proves it's absurd for anybody to think they know more about being funny than Daisy May Cooper. A riot from start to finish * Daily Mirror *
Hilarious. A riot from start to finish * Daily Express *
Perfect for anyone who loved This Country or wants to learn about how Cooper got her break in comedy * Funny Women *
Memoirs are often described as 'honest' but it's rare that someone would write as honestly as Cooper * Funny Women *
The funniest book of the year * Sunday Express *
