In celebration of the release of her hilarious memoir of the same name, comedian, novelist and professional show-off Jenny Eclair comes to Aberdeen with a brand-new autobiographical show.

From drama school, (mostly drinking cider and eating sausage rolls), sleeping with men who looked like they lived under a carpet, punk poetry, anorexia, bedsit misery, waitressing and not really having a clue about anything, to being the first woman to win the Perrier Award, becoming a mother, author, grumpy old woman, podcaster and nana.

Still gigging to sell-out crowds 40 years later, Jenny invites people to look back at what she can remember before she forgets everything.

Jenny Eclair is bringing her new show to Aberdeen next year.

Promoter Doug Taylor of Mint of Montrose said: “We had so much fun on Jenny’s last sell-out visits to Aberdeen and Dundee, we’re delighted to be welcoming her back with her brand new tour.

"It’s sure to be another big laugh theatre night out that’s not to be missed."
