JENNY ECLAIR: HOW TO BE A MIDDLE AGED WOMAN (WITHOUT GOING INSANE)
Thursday 19th November at 8pm
Box Office: 01905 611427
Jenny Eclair has been a stand up comic for many years. She was the first woman to win the coveted Perrier Award, still gigs regularly and is on tour around the UK this autumn.
Professional Grumpy Old Woman, Splash! survivor, amateur soup maker, and novice knitter, Jenny Eclair is younger than Madonna but eats crisps and likes wine. Semi–bearded and suffering from outbreaks of gout and hysteria, Eclair puts middle age under the microscope and decides whether to laugh, cry or buy a dachshund!
Instantly recognisable from TV, small screen highlights include, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, the Grumpy Old Women series, plus the Grumpy Guides, Grumpy Holidays and It’s Grim Up North. She also occasionally crops up on day time telly and gets very excited about doing things like This Morning and Loose Women. She was actually trained as a straight actress and has appeared on Holby City and The Bill. In early 2009 she appeared playing women of forty plus, in Al Murray’s Multiple Personality Disorder (ITV1).
Eclair is a writer as much as a performer. She has co-written a number of one-woman plays including the critically acclaimed Andy Warhol Syndrome, which was also adapted for BBC Radio 4. She is the author of two novels and various other non fiction books.
You are most welcome to join her at Huntingdon Hall, just button your cardi up properly and wipe that lipstick off your teeth!
