  • This really was a laugh out loud book I had to keep apologising to people around me for laughing I could hear Denise Scott s voice in my head and really enjoyed the journey she took me on with her family This is a very honest and humorous reflection of Denise s life I really enjoyed it An easy read.


  • Disappointing I have seen the author Denise Scott appear a number of times on various ABC TV shows, and generally find her quite appealing Her form of comedy stand up isn t offensive, reflective on day to day events, a narrative of her life The book is the same I think it would be better to hear the stories as a stand up routine there aren t many if any laugh out loud moments in the book, but I can imagine finding the tales funnier if she were to tell them herself.


  • I keep seeing Denise Scott on Spicks Specks and other comedy shows and I find her to be hilarious so I decided to read her biography I found it to be very honest and funny account of her life and her family s It was interesting to read how she put together her stand up acts and just how real the antics were The ups and downs of her relationships with her husband, her career and her life were described in unflinching and revealing ways and it was a very fascinating read






  • I love Denise Scott I have done since I was a teenager and I was disappointed I couldn t make it to her show of the same title when it came to Adelaide.This book charts Scott s family life from their early days with a brand new baby to their current situation with the full nest and wondering what s coming next.The book is an addictive series of very short chapters almost like the books you often find that are a collection of pieces by a regular columnist, where each snippet is relatively the sam [...]


  • A great light hearted read by Denise Scott that really could have been about what is happening in my house except without Denise s great humour A really well written and very funny book The book is basically a memoir of her and her family s life whilst they lived at Number 26 and all of the goings on there The ups and the downs, and the ins and the outs of life whilst they grew up The crazy times of being with incredibly creative parents, but incredibly poor Parents putting up with each other an [...]


  • I unashamedly adore Denise Scott Every appearance she makes on tv has me in hysterics So I had high expectations for this book and was worried I might be disappointed I needn t have worried This book is a hilarious read Denise s world is very typical Australian Her trials and tribulations with her children, her marriage, her mother and her job seem so familiar especially to this middle aged female Australian mother My favourite section was where she gives up smoking So funny There are a couple o [...]


  • Denise Scott doesn t fail to crack me up There s something so authentic about this Aussie comedian and so much I learnt about her including reflecting back on awful situations with a sprinkling of humour like being married to a professional clown on stilts, dealing with his infidelity and her eventual love of her house which she initially thought of as a bit of a derelict mess that s falling apart Kind of a metaphor for her life but learning to see the beauty in the chaos of life.


  • I loved this book Not knowing much about the author as a stand up comedian, I found her writing style friendly, happy, straight to the point, funny, witty, heartfelt and just the style of writing I like to read I like conversational writing I like easy to read writing I like writing that reads as if the author were speaking to me, and me alone Denise.I like your writing Thank you for a wonderful book that let me into your life and family No 26.


  • Hilarious and touching, Dennis Scott really captures her younger years of meeting her husband and the changes posed by family and long term relationship, the growing up of her kids, and how she fell into performing joining the circus and then on to stand up comedy Her writing style is as dry and witty as she is in her stand up making truthful and funny observations about her life.


  • OMG, you must read this book, for the laugh s and for seeing that this woman can write as amusingly as she can tell a story in her stand up routines.Loved this book, so glad I spent the money to buy it, and will be pushing it onto my friends as a you have to read this I loved her tales of being a parent, and the fact that I could so relate to them.Great book


  • a very enjoyable, easy read having heard denise doing stand up comedy its easy to imagine her voice telling the stories which she does with so much humour while not avoiding the difficult issues of her household no flowery language just an entertaining way of looking at life coping with the struggles definitely recommend.


  • Lighthearted amusing book from Denise, through all the highs and lows of family and gaining enough work to pay the bills Loved reminiscing the glory days of the Big Gig and the other comedy shows that Denise was a part of.


  • Very honest account of life from dennis scott as wife mother and stand up comedian Always entertaining but not always laugh out loud With many moments that I m sure stay at home mums can relate too









  • Very like a chat with an old friend who is great storyteller Denise takes through her life in a warts and all memoir She never spares herself in this wickedly funny narrative.
