Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Jenny Eclair How To Be A Middle Aged Woman (Without Going Insane) (UK)

Professional grumpy old woman, 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, Jenny puts middle age under the microscope and decides whether to laugh, cry or buy a dachshund! You are most welcome to join her, just button your cardie up properly and wipe that lipstick off your teeth.

Jenny was the first female to win UK comedy’s coveted Edinburgh Comedy Award. For over thirty years she has channelled her formidable creative energy into writing novels, radio plays and stage shows including the internationally successful ‘Grumpy Old Women Live’ extravaganzas. She tours extensively and makes regular TV appearances; if she could just stop disgracing herself she’d be a national comedy treasure.

Éclair has no intention of slowing down, she’s still got a whopping mortgage and a pathological need to show off.

Funnier than she’s ever been, you don’t have to be a middle-aged woman to love this middle-aged woman!
