I love This Country, and reading about her early life showed how much of it has been written into the scripts, but I almost wish I hadn't read it.

Daisy narrates the story really well and does lots of funny voices, and she slightly goes of piste into other little chats that aren't in the book.She came across well on Taskmaster, I find her really funny and loved This Country, especially coming from the same rural area I totally get it all, but this book does nothing to make me think she’s a particularly decent or kind person. Daisy was such a tonic during the lockdowns with her Instagram romance escapades, so I couldn’t wait to read this. This book starts off amazing and until about 3/4 of the way through stays consistently funny (I’m still thinking about that showcase in under the pub) but I can’t help but feel the last few chapters were really rushed!

is* funny, don't misunderstand me; it's bawdy, hilarious, wince-inducing, rude, self-deprecating, vulgar, and brutally honest, but there are also moments of real darkness. I expect hearing the author telling the stories would be very different, but reading them on a page left me desperately sorry that she and her family had been through so much.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. She won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Female Comedy Performance in 2018 for her role as Kerry Mucklowe in the BBC Three series This Country, a mockumentary-style show about the eccentricities of life in rural England, which she co-created and co-wrote with her brother, Charlie Cooper. Wrote in a way that’s funny but also very truthful about the struggles Daisy faced breaking into the industry. Even when things really do go their way and This Country finally gets commissioned to be made, it’s almost a cursory mention at the end and that’s it.

Overall a darker and more tragic read than what I was expecting, but with some good laugh out loud moments. 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. Together with my brother Charlie, I staggered my way through adolescence from one drama to the next until finally, after years of trying, we had This Country commissioned by the BBC.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.
