What do you do when both of your daughters have been diagnosed with autism, your wife is depressed and your job has been made redundant? You become a comedian!

After years of feeling like he was losing at life, Aidan Comerford was on top of the world. He had just stepped off stage after being crowned the winner of So You Think You re Funny? at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014, joining previous winners such as Peter Kay, Dylan Moran and Tommy Tiernan. This was it! His big break.

Back in Ireland, on the same day, at a remote country cottage near a lake, his daughter went missing

A funny, heartfelt and uplifting memoir about the challenges and adventures of parenting, and accepting that sometimes you have to have corn flakes for dinner.

‘Any parent of a child with autism should read this book. It gives some much-needed humour for the dark days. Far from being glib, it will be a lifeline for so many. ‘ Irish Independent

Available in all good Irish book stores, and in all the usual places online.
