Marise Gaughan

Trigger Warning: Suicide

This week Cariad talks to stand-up comedian + writer Marise Gaughan about her dad, Tommy. Marise was just fourteen when her father first attempted suicide and twenty-three when he finally took his own life. In her recent memoir, Trouble, she recounts her life living with him as an alcoholic and the incredible close and difficult relationship they had. As ever we talk grief, horniness + Hollywood endings.

You can buy Marise's memoir, Trouble, now. For more information on all her gigs and writing head to or follow her on Twitter @marisecomedy. You can follow the Griefcast on Twitter + Instagram @thegriefcast.

Griefcast is hosted by Cariad Lloyd, edited by Kate Holland, recorded remotely in Cariad's living room, artwork is by Jayde Perkin and the music is provided by The Glue Ensemble. And remember, you are not alone.

Cariad's book, You Are Not Alone, is published by Bloomsbury Tonic and available for pre-order now.
