Sharing "the unpredictable craziness of being a mum", Beaumont, who stars in the fictionalised sitcom Meet The Richardsons, in which she and her husband, fellow comedian Jon Richardson, and their young daughter Elsie play exaggerated versions of themselves, strives to capture the "madness" of having your first child.
The book recalls how Beaumont was hospitalised with indigestion in her third trimester, blaming a burrito, and how she came close to slapping her hypo-birthing instructor. It also covers efforts she made to infiltrate the local mums' social groups and when she embarrassingly forgot her own new-born's name.
Mummy ... Can I Stand On Your Head? also promises to share further insights into her marriage, as she and Richardson navigate her "raging pregnancy hormones" and the pair find themselves "baulking at pram prices together".
Meet The Richardsons was one of Dave's highest-rated shows of 2020, attracting 1.13 million viewers. A second series of the comedy, written by Beaumont and Car Share's Tim Reid, has been commissioned, following a two-part Christmas special last month.
From TV's award-winning comedy mum, Lucy Beaumont, comes her "hilarious debut on the trials and tribulations of motherhood".
Known for her sharp, witty and surreal view on everyday life, Lucy shares the unpredictable craziness of being a mum in this brilliant and laugh-out-loud 'mumoir'. Mums everywhere will recognise the madness of it all. Like when Lucy was hospitalised with indigestion in her third trimester (blame the burrito), or when she was *this close* to slapping her hypo-birthing instructor. Or the efforts she made to infiltrate the local mum's social groups and when she embarrassingly forgot her own new-born baby's name!
Heart-warming and laugh-out-loud funny, Drinking Custard also captures Lucy's marriage to comedian Jon Richardson, as they navigate Lucy's raging pregnancy hormones and balk at pram prices together.
Get ready to make room on mum's bookshelf for Drinking Custard to sit alongside other mum classics such as Why Mummy Drinks, Hurrah For Gin! and The Unmumsy Mum.
