Sam Avery: The Learner Parent

Sunday 28th October 2018

SORRY, SOLD OUT! If you would like to be added to a list for possible returned tickets please email admin@thestand.co.uk
Parenthood is a crafty beast. The second you master something it changes the game so you're rubbish at it again.
Stand-up comedian, viral blogger and bestselling author Sam Avery (aka The Learner Parent ) started his award-winning blog when his twin 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.
