The comedian's first book traces her life from growing up as a child of Nigerian parents in London, to enduring the racist and sexist comments of co-workers while she was a lift engineer, to fulfilling her dream of moving to the US to further her career.
"The definition of cack-handed is left-handed, which I am, and also awkward and clumsy, which I am. It also represents the unconventional track my life and career has taken," Yashere said.
"This is a book about trying, whether you succeed or not. About wanting something and going for it, despite how ridiculous, impossible, and stupid it sounds to other people. I'm excited to take you guys on this journey through my crazy life."
Frustrated by a lack of opportunities for black comics in the UK, Yashere moved to Los Angeles in 2007 and became a correspondent for satirical news staple The Daily Show, recorded three Netflix specials and co-created, writes on and appears in the CBS sitcom Bob Hearts Abishola, which returns for a second series soon.
Writing on social media at the time of the sitcom's recommission, she said: "Moved out to the US in 2007, with 2 suitcases & a dream. Only took 25 years in this business, but never too late for a dream to come true. And I didn't just dream. I PUT IN THAT WORK."
It looks like you're in the US? Fear not! Almost everything can still be ordered. Amazon UK deliver internationally, Amazon.com carries many items separately, or you can look out for US/Canadian flags on our product listings for direct links.
If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
