“A woman with a funnybone for a backbone”
‘Funny Cow’ charts the rise to stardom of a female comedienne through the 1970’s and 1980’s. It is set against the backdrop of working men’s clubs and the stand-up comedy circuit of the North of England.
From her troubled childhood to her turbulent adult relationships, the Funny Cow uses the raw material of her life experiences to bring her unique style of comedy to the stage. A stand-up comedienne in an all-male world, ‘Funny Cow’ delivers tragedy and comedy in equal measure.
Maxine Peake plays the role of a lifetime as ‘Funny Cow’ with Tony Pitts as her violent soul mate ‘Bob’, Paddy Considine acts as her middle class lover ‘Angus’ and Stephen Graham plays her brother ‘Mike’.
Starring: Maxine Peake, Paddy Considine, Tony Pitts, Stephen Graham, Alun Armstrong, Kevin Eldon, Lindsey Coulson, Christine Bottomley, Hannah Walters, Diane Morgan, Jim Moir, John Bishop, Bobby Knutt, Richard Hawley and Corinne Bailey Rae.
