What’s so funny about anxiety? In conversation with Georgia Pritchett

It’s often said that laughter is the best therapy. But when anxiety hits, it just isn’t as easy as all that to look on the funny side.

Join us for a frank and funny conversation with Georgia about learning to cope with anxiety. If the book is anything to go by, we may also talk about hamsters, the Queen, budgies, questionable fashion choices and Jimmy Osman.

ABOUT Georgia Pritchett

Georgia Pritchett is multi-award-winning comedy and drama writer, who has five Emmys, five Writers Guild awards, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA and a Producer's Guild award. She is also no stranger to anxiety.

Her book, MY MESS IS A BIT OF A LIFE: Adventures in Anxiety, is an invaluable field guide for anyone who struggles to contain their worries. Why bother writing them down? When you feel like you’re losing your mind, how do you even begin to talk about it? How do you discover what makes everything worse, and find the things that make it better?

A copy of Georgia's book will be up for grabs for the first 10 guests in the room.
