An Afternoon with Daisy May Cooper

An Afternoon with Daisy May Cooper

Celebrate the 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.

Life hasn't always been straightforward for Daisy: 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. But with the assurance from her Mum that the worst experiences make the most entertaining stories, Daisy stashed away her most humiliating and ridiculous incidents to be revealed in her first memoir, and now, live on stage.

In conversation with a very special guest, Daisy will share a myriad of tales; from auditioning to be a stripper and being laughed off stage by a bunch of topless dancers, spending her student loan on a penthouse suite and facing expulsion from drama school, along with behind-the-scenes anecdotes from creating and filming her BAFTA-winning show.

Don’t miss the opportunity to spend an afternoon with Daisy, as she reveals stories from her endearingly honest and hilarious memoir Don't Laugh, It Will Only Encourage Her.
