An afternoon with Helen Lederer | Yate Library
Helen Lederer is one of Britain's best known familiar faces in the field of comedy, writing and acting. She was part of a group of early 1980’s comedians, including Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, the late Rik Mayall and Ben Elton who made their names at London’s Comedy Store.
Her latest book - 'Not That I'm Bitter' - is a hilarious and alarmingly honest memoir.
Enjoy an afternoon with Helen, as her memoir lands hot off the press.
“Dizzy, dippy and divinely funny Helen Lederer takes you on an insanely readable tour through her chaotically wonderful life. Under her costume of the madcap and the daft, there ticks a very, very smart brain and there beats a most warm and kindly heart. It’s a wonderful read.” - Stephen Fry

“This wildly entertaining ride through Helen’s fabulous life is funny, adorable, and thought-provoking in equal measure, rather like the dazzling author herself.”
- Joanna Lumley
“Helen’s book is funny, wise, brilliant, and brave Just like its author. A fascinating trip through the life and times of one of the early (and not sufficiently recognised) heroes of Alternative Comedy.” - Ben Elton
“Helen Lederer is the third funniest woman in the world.”
- Dawn French

“Helen is an open book, and this is a book you should open. Her progression through the comedy swamp of the eighties is fascinating, poignant and laugh-out-loudy.” - Jo Brand

“Honestly funny, honestly truthful, from one of the pioneers of the 80’s comedy scene, when women on the circuit were as rare as unicorns.” - Jenny Eclair
