FUNNY SIDE OF BEING LEFT HOLDING THE BABY.
NEW parent? Sam Avery knows what you are going through.
Stand-up comedian and father of twins, Sam is bringing his show The Learner Parent to Derby and Leicester this week.
He started his award-winning blog when his boys were born. A million nappies, Peppa Pig episodes and a head-full of hair loss later, he shares all the lows, highs and hilarious in-betweens of his experiences of first-time parenthood.
Sam's honest, messy account of wrestling with sleep deprivation and breast pumps - right through to his botched attempts at discipline and pathetic bids to stifle various toddler tantrums that definitely registered on the Richter scale - will have you testing your pelvic floor with laughter.
See the show on Friday at Landau Forte Theatre in Derby. Tickets: derbylive.co.uk or 01332 255 800, PS17 plus fees; and on Tuesday, May 14, at The Cookie in Leicester. Tickets: thecookie leicester.co.uk or 0116 253 1212, PS18.70 inc fees.
