Following a sell-out 2016 tour, professional grumpy old woman, Splash survivor, amateur soup maker, and novice knitter Jenny Eclair extends her hit tour into the spring of 2017 and she is back in Liverpool.
Younger than Madonna but eats crisps and likes wine, too young to die, but too old to stand near the edge in case she gets dizzy and falls over, professional Grumpy old woman Jenny Éclair announces How to Be a Middle-Aged Woman (Without Going Insane), which returns to St. George’s Hall’s Concert Room on Sunday 5th March 2017 by popular demand. You are most welcome to join her, just button your cardi up properly and wipe that lipstick off your teeth.
Tackling questions such as, is swearing better than crying, HRT or boxercise – you decide, Jenny takes to the stage to explore some of the boll*cks that surrounds the ageing process. Why are so many young people idiots, is Chardonnay medicinal and how many episodes of Bake Off does it take to lower your blood pressure? Watch a woman happy to have lost her dignity years ago, lob a few grenades back in the face of ageism. 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.
Jenny Eclair has been a stand-up comic since the last millennium: she was the first woman to win the coveted Perrier Award and hasn’t stopped banging on about it ever since.
