Summary

'A great comedian and an extraordinary life' - Billy Connolly

'Properly laugh-out-loud funny' - The Times

JOIN COMEDY LEGEND AND NATIONAL TREASURE JANEY GODLEY AS SHE LOOKS BACK ON HER EXTRAORDINARY LIFE AND FACES CANCER HEAD-ON

Janey has been a determined fighter all her life - from her tough Glasgow childhood to becoming the much-loved comedian she is now. It was the strength she needed to survive as a sweary-mouthed woman in the male-dominated comedy clubs of the 1990s.

She needed it again when she brought a case against the uncle who'd abused her as a child. A terrifying ordeal - but she won.

From rocky beginnings, Janey started to gain big audiences at home and internationally. Awards rolled in for her acting and writing too. She was at her height, and with a soaring online following for her hilarious political voice-overs, when in 2021 hurtful, historic tweets were unearthed which shook her to the core. In the eye of the media storm, her spirit was nearly broken, but her fanbase stayed strong.

At the end of the long sell-out tour which followed she received the devastating news she had ovarian cancer. Her future hung in the balance, but even in treatment, a new tour went ahead, called Not Dead Yet. Janey now faces her fears head on and shares the tumultuous journey she's on, continuing to find humour even in her darkest moments.

Inspiring, funny, open-hearted, Janey celebrates everything this hilarious and defiant woman is - against the odds - and confirms just why we'll never want her to shut up.
