Truths from an Unreliable Witness
Fiona O’Loughlin was raised in the generation of children who were to be seen, but not heard … unless there were guests in the house. Then she’d watch everyone, telling stories. This was where she discovered the rhythm of stories and the lubrication that alcohol leant the telling. Years later, as a mum of five, Fiona would become one of Australia’s most-loved comedians, performing gigs in New York, Montreal, Singapore, London, Toronto and Edinburgh. But Fiona was hiding a secret in open sight, using alcoholism as material for her comedy and using comedy as an excuse for her alcoholism.
Truths from an Unreliable Witness is a fiercely honest and wryly funny memoir about hanging on to your last straw of sanity and finding laughter in the darkest of times.
‘Comedy is a bipolar industry. The highs are dizzying, and the lows make your stomach drop like the Big Dipper ride at Luna Park.’
