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'll Only Encourage Her is the endearingly honest and hilarious memoir from the creator and star of award-winning BBC comedy This Country.
