Don't Laugh, It'll Only Encourage Her: The No 1 Sunday Times Bestseller
About this deal
I have lived the most humiliating, ridiculous, screw-up of a life but Mum was right, you've just got to remember, sometimes the worst experiences make the most entertaining stories. I then went on to follow Daisy May and Charlie Cooper on Instragam, where Daisy kept us all entertained with her what-can-you-fit-under-your-tits challenge, and all the stories of the adventures with the Sea Captain.
As for ‘accidentally’ spending the student grant on a London hotel’s penthouse suite before RADA, Daisy really doesn’t come off as very sharp. This is a real insight into Daisy's life pre-This Country (which is an absolute banger of a show btw) and how she grew up in poverty.One of the most hilarious books I’ve read - so many anecdotes I was nearly crying with laughter on the train. There are so many mad crazy experiences in the book that I did, on occasion, question whether not they could all really be true. All the same Daisy May Cooper has fucking been THROUGH IT and she’s a walking example of how never giving up on something you really want will eventually pay off !
This book proves it’s absurd for anybody to think they know more about being funny than Daisy May Cooper.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. It was heart wrenching hearing Daisy discuss her days of living on the poverty line before the break through of “This Country,” and she is a testimony to all those who pushed through the darkest of times, persevered and carried on fighting for their dreams. She tells every story with equal humor and enthusiasm, in the unique style that we have come to know and love about her.
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. Overall a darker and more tragic read than what I was expecting, but with some good laugh out loud moments. This audiobook is narrated by Daisy May Cooper and includes an exclusive, bonus interview with Daisy and her Dad, Paul Cooper. However, the hardback printed book shows lots of previously unseen photographs, plus copies of old school text books and random drawings. 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?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. 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. 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.
I can’t wait to see what Daisy does next, but in the meantime I’ll carry on rewatching This Country and scrolling through her Instagram feed.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.
