Fancy An Eclair?

Jenny Eclair recently turned sixty and she’ll be turning her gimlet eye on the ageing process in her new show ‘Sixty! (FFS!)’. She’s got three dates in the region in early December.

Is it fair to call Jenny Eclair a national treasure yet? A comedian, actress and novelist, she was also the only person to ever make Loose Women vaguely watchable (and her stint on Grumpy Old Women was a joy to behold). It’s her stand-up shows that really give her scope to cut loose, however, and she’ll be doing exactly that when she brings ‘Sixty! (FFS!)’ our way. ‘The Face of Vagisan’ will be confronting a new decade of decrepitude (her words, not mine…) and moaning about the fact that it now takes her 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her date of birth when she’s filling in online forms. Shoud she celebrate or crawl into a hole… Find out when she hits the region in early December. DP
