Stand Up & Sock it to Them Sisters!

Broadcaster, singer, actress and leadership coach Gwenno Dafydd has written the ultimate canon of female stand-up comics, a book called Stand Up and Sock it to them Sister. With this book Gwenno hopes to help fight the baffling stereotype that women aren’t funny.


The book is the result of 20 years work, in which Gwenno interviewed 84 people who are comedy industry professionals, from all ages and backgrounds.  There are Tips for the Top and interviews with over sixty-five comics working world-wide, from the pioneering Joan Rivers, Jo Brand, Jenny Eclair, and Helen Lederer, to relative newcomers such as Nina Conti, Shazia Mirza, and Amy Schumer, Stand Up and Sock it to them Sister offers a practical guide and invaluable advice on the practice and challenges of being a stand-up comedian and how to make it in the world of comedy.

Stand up and Sock it to them Sister is out now! For more information click here!
