Me of the Never Never by Fiona OLoughlinFiona O Loughlin is certainly the funniest (and possibly one of the busiest) working mothers in Australia today: a stand-up comedian based in Alice Springs and Adelaide, she is on the road for most of the year, doing live performances, plus regular television appearances. Fiona has also had successful shows at the Edinburgh and Adelaide fringe festivals, the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal and the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
This book contains her stories - funny and sometimes sad stories about her upbringing as part of a large Irish-Catholic family on a wheat farm in South Australia, her chaotic and disorganised family life ever since, living in Alice Springs and making it as a stand-up comedian. She also talks of a darker side of the life of many performers - alcohol.
This book is for anyone who likes to laugh (and cry), who wants to read about a woman living her life on her terms.

Fiona O'Loughlin once accidentally swore in front of the Queen and Prince Philip while meeting the Royals for the first time. The year-old comedian recalled the awkward experience on Today Extra on Monday, admitting the F-word slipped out when she was trying to apologise for the fact her husband Chris had broken Royal protocol. Unfortunately, the gaffe resulted in further embarrassment for the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! Australia winner.
