Product description


Viv Groskop has paid her dues so you don't have to. The story of her whirlwind comedy apprenticeship is as funny as it is inspiring, and may also give you nightmares. (Tim Dowling)

Absolutely hilarious (Jennifer Saunders)

Brilliant. (Jo Brand)

Viv Groskop is crazy, clever, brave and kind. But mostly she's crazy. A real insight into a secret world. I laughed, I cried, I dry-retched at her sheer balls. (Caroline Quentin)

The working mum's version of Eddie Izzard's 50 marathons in 50 days. Hilarious. (Sally Phillips)

An amazing book about stand-up that's also about love, determination and pursuing your dreams. (Lucy Porter)

This is exactly what it's like starting in comedy. Viv Groskop completely captures the rare highs and frequent plummeting lows. Warm, life-affirming and a hugely funny read. (Jo Caulfield)

Viv is the patron saint of anyone bonkers enough to do something they're shit scared of. (Sharon Horgan)

Viv Groskop tackles her mission with wit, honesty and a devotion that borders on total insanity. (Mark Watson)

A seize-the-day memoir to inspire anyone with a long-held dream. (GOOD HOUSEKEEPING)
