HOLD MY CHIPS, THE WOMEN ARE REVOLTING! A darkly funny guide to life as a woman from Britain's favourite comedian.

HOLD MY CHIPS, THE WOMEN ARE REVOLTING! A darkly funny guide to life as a woman from Britain's favourite comedian.

When Jo Brand hosted Have I Got News For You late last year, her calm explanation of the effects of sexism on women to a bemused all-male cast turned into a viral phenomenon.

There has been a whole tradition of books over hundreds of years where a father shares his wisdom with his son - started by Lord Chesterfield in the eighteenth century; while women have been silent (a.k.a. bullied into thinking their advice wasn't worth writing down). This book puts a stop to all that.

Ranging from your family and how to survive it, to what no one tells you about the female body; from how not to fall in love, to heckling as a life-skill. Born Lippy gathers together the things Jo's learnt about the world, the things she wishes she'd known and the things she hopes for the future into a hilarious and highly useful guide to life that everyone female (and male) needs to read immediately.

Packed with memorable anecdotes from her life and career, coloured by her experiences as a psychiatric nurse and working mother of two, this book will not only entertain but also really help people.

Biographical Notes

Jo Brand started life as a good girl, became a bad one for quite a bit, but now she's gunning for Reformed 'Man Hater' turned National Disgrace. Being grumpy enables her to react in a perfectly reasonable way to things that in the past she would have suppressed for the sake of keeping the peace/being polite/not making someone angry. Starting comedy at thirty (and as an ex-psychiatric nurse) also meant she gave much less of a toss about what other people thought of her.

The host of several TV shows including the award-winning Channel 4 show, Through The Cakehole, Jo has made legendary appearances on many others from Have I Got News For You to Would I Lie To You to QI.

She is married, has two daughters and lives in London
