“A woman with a funnybone for a backbone”
Set against the backdrop of working men’s clubs and the stand-up
comedy circuit of the North, ‘Funny Cow’ charts the rise to stardom of a female
comedian through the 1970s and 80s.
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 her middle-class
lover ‘Angus’; and Stephen Graham as her brother ‘Mike’.
With original songs
and score composed by Richard Hawley.
