What do you do when both of your daughters have been diagnosed with autism, your wife is depressed and your job has been made redundant? If you’re Aidan Comerford, then you become a comedian. After years of feeling like he was losing at life, he crowned the winner of So You Think You re Funny? at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014, joining previous winners such as Peter Kay, Dylan Moran and Tommy Tiernan. This was his big break. But back in Ireland, on the same day, at a remote country cottage near a lake, Aidan’s wife Martha was searching for their young daughter who had gone missing. He’s written a book about what it’s like to make big plans, only for life to get in the way. It’s called Cornflakes for Dinner.
