The stories about applying for drama courses, and eventually RADA, dreadful auditions, semi-abusive relationships, none of it felt humorous.

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 is pretty challenging right now, but for the few days its taken me to read Don't Laugh It'll Only Encourage Her, I've found a brief respite from the day to day issues and have been able to chuckle, snort, giggle and fully on belly laugh my way through the whole book! There's the battle Daisy May and brother Charlie had to get back the rights to their own work from a production company who'd promised so much but delivered so little, and Daisy's own battles with low self-esteem and fear of having ideas "above her station".

Overall a darker and more tragic read than what I was expecting, but with some good laugh out loud moments. 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. Some of the situations she got herself into when she was younger and the way she recounts it are a pick me up tonic full of laughter you never knew you needed! 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. 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.please don't start reading this book expecting it to be a laugh a minute, because you'll be bitterly disappointed. Still the funniest book I’ve touched in a long time and I’d be up for reading any number of sequels. 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? 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.
