Brenda Monk is back, but now she is rich and famous, in this brilliant sequel to Katy Brand’s first novel, Brenda Monk is Funny. Brenda’s career as a stand-up comedian has rocketed beyond her wildest dreams, and she is steadily working her way up to becoming comedy royalty.
She takes the TV world by storm, appearing on all the major panel shows, finds herself on the sofa of the chat show kings, returns to the Edinburgh Festival as a well-established name, and finally books a solo arena tour. Her life is an insane rollercoaster of bookings, bars and barely remembering the night before. She meets so many of her heroes, she can hardly keep up. She even sleeps with a couple of them…
But the downside is getting slagged off in national newspapers, receiving abuse on Twitter and other social media, new 'friends' with agendas of their own, and losing old relationships to a career which threatens to take over every corner of her life.
Brenda will attempt to adjust to this new profile and keep true to her character and the kind of comedy she wants to write and perform, but in the face of the corrupting pressure of fame, she may not always be successful. Brenda Monk is Famous will be a behind the scenes look what it's like to be a well-known comedian, with a sharp examination of modern celebrity in all its slippery guises and a good dollop of gossip...
