Publisher's Summary

Part autobiography, part self-help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman, part collection of synonyms for nunny, Sarah Millican's debut audiobook delves into her super normal life with daft stories, funny tales and proper advice on how to get past life's blips - like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom postdivorce.

If you've ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off-the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your 30s, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny's, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog or worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is your audiobook. If you haven't done those things but wish you had, this is your audiobook. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, this is your audiobook.

    A honest a humourous account of how Sarah came to be (Choice words included) one of the UK's best comedians. Funny throughout.

    "Wonderfully washed over me during a sickness. ❤️"

    A very funny, lighthearted listen peppered with wisdoms Sarah’s learned over the years. I’d recommend it to my daughter....if she was old enough to be suitable for all the adult language!


    She espouses her love of telly because it washes over her without effort, late night, after a gig. Last week I was sick with a flu-like illness, mostly in bed. Sarah’s stories wonderfully washed over me as I lay with my eyes closed, inducing the occasional laughter-triggered coughing fits.

    A feel-good listen about being an ordinary Brit-girl who’s done well for herself with hard work and, well, mostly hard work actually

    Sarah’s funny reading and compassionate approach to bullies, feminism, body image, animals, marriage and career is worth a listen.
    For me, worth a re-listen too, for the feel-good, encouraging element. Just not when the kids are around.

    "5 Champion Stars"

    One of the most enchanting women reads one of the sweetest autobiographies.

    Sarah welcomes you into her life through food, jokes, honest storytelling, animals and a little self help advice.

    We often see Comedians put out interesting and funny books. This is the one that you need to actually pick up and take home.

    The audio narration, editing and production was top notch. Highly recommend.

    "Champion, Just Champion!"

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Sarah and her work, I love the podcasts of standard issue so was thrilled when I heard she was doing an audio version of her book. I have thoroughly enjoyed, but I feel sad it’s now over. I need something else as a fix that is as equally as interesting and funny. Though I genuinely shed a tear one evening on my way to Hereford when she spoke of her divorce. As they say “The feels were real”

    "Fantastic!!!"

    Sarah Millican is an absolute delight! I think I enjoyed this more as an audiobook than I would have as a traditional book because of the way she reads it. I guffawed many times, shed a few tears and was surprised how many things really struck a chord with me. This audiobook made an epically long journey an absolute pleasure. And I've found someone else with a thing about hotel kettles (very few people understand this). Thank you Sarah!

    "Motivating, hilarious & Glorious"

    Loved every minute! I've long been a fan of Sarah's! In fact, in the book she talks about a gig she missed in Birmingham around 8 years ago due to a traffic nightmare (if you end up buying the book I'm talking about the she-wee incident) and I was one of those fans waiting at the gig she didnt end up making it to! Despite not reaching the gig she still kept me hilaroously entertained as I followed her lack of progress up the M6 through countless tweets documenting her pee related life choice!
    I bought this as an audiobook so that Sarah could keep me company on a very long car journey and she didnt disappoint. Her stories of her childhood, her divorce, finding love again and making her name in the world of comedy are told with all the humour I'd hoped for and expected but with touching candidness, insight and tips on how her experiences might help you improve your outlook on life. She says in the book that she wants it to be a sort of Biographical self help book and though I've never bought a self help book in my life she has given me some real food for thought. I hope from reading this book I can now try harder to be a nicer person, better friend and care slightly less about what people think of my appearance, hobbies, life choices and such as long as I'm happy with them.
    Above all this book is a lovely way to spend 6hrs with a lovely, glouriously funny lady.
