Afridiziak has teamed up with HARPERCOLLINS and has 3 copies of Gina Yashere’s memoir Cack-Handed to give away to our readers.
In Cack-Handed: A Memoir comedian Gina Yashere tells the story of how from growing up as a child of Nigerian immigrants in working class London, running from skinheads, and her overprotective mum, Gina went on to become the first female engineer with the UK branch of Otis, the largest lift and escalator company in the world, where she went through a baptism of fire from her racist and sexist co-workers.
Not believing her life was difficult enough, she later left engineering to become a stand-up comic, appearing on numerous TV shows and becoming one of the top comedians in the UK, before giving it all up to move to the US, a dream she’d had since she was six years old, watching American kids on TV riding cool bicycles and solving crimes.
Touching upon issues of social class, racism and sexuality, Cack-Handed is a collection of eccentric and uproarious stories that reveals how Gina’s unconventional upbringing became the foundation of her successful career as an international comic.
