Jenny Eclair Embarks on 60-Date Stand-Up Tour

Comedy legend Jenny Eclair turned 60 this year, just before the UK went into Covid-19 lockdown. To celebrate reaching this milestone and the success of her brand new book - Older and Wider, which made The Sunday Times Best Sellers List over the summer, Jenny hopes and intends to get back on the road in 2021 with a brand new 60-date stand-up tour, SIXTY! (FFS!), from 4th March 2021. Tickets will be on sale from Friday 4thSeptember and available via jennyeclair.com.

Having hit 60 (but still a year younger than Madonna), Jenny Eclair AKA 'The Face of Vagisan' confronts a new decade of decrepitude. Now that it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her DOB when she's filling in forms online, should she celebrate or crawl into a hole? What will her 60's hold for this 1960's babe and is it a legal requirement to buy Nordic walking poles?

Message from Jenny, "GOOD NEWS (HOPEFULLY). Hello friends, with any luck my new show, 'SIXTY! (FFS!)' will be touring the UK from March 4th 2021 just six months after we originally planned to kick off. With the tour being so rudely interrupted by a global pandemic, I'm really looking forward to seeing you back at a theatre near you, but only if and when it's safe to do so*.

*With this in mind we might have to push things back further, but hopefully not so far back that the title contravenes the trades description act!

PS, 'I'm carrying quite a lot of excess lock down weight, which you can feel free to discuss behind my back during the interval. Love Jenny x "

Jenny was the first woman to win the prestigious Perrier Award and this latest tour follows her previous sell-out show, How To be A Middle Aged Woman (Without Going Insane), which toured the UK and had a run at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

She currently co-hosts the Older and Wider podcast with Grumpy Old Women producer Judith Holder, having written the internationally successful Grumpy Old Women Live stage shows together. She has many TV and radio credits to her name, including the Grumpy Old Women series (BBC Two), The Great Celebrity Bake Off For Stand Up To Cancer (Channel 4), Loose Women (ITV), Splash (ITV), I'm a Celebrity (ITV) and Grayson's Art Club (Channel 4). Her radio series of monologues Little Lifetimes (BBC Radio 4) is currently recording its sixth series. West End theatre credits include Steaming, Mum's the Word and both Grumpy Old Women Live and Chin Up Britain, co-written by Eclair and Holder.

As well as the most recent best-selling Older and Wider, A Survivor's Guide to the Menopause, Jenny is also a Sunday Times top ten bestselling author of the critically acclaimed novels Camberwell Beauty, Having a Lovely Time and Life, Death and Vanilla Slices, as well as the Richard and Judy bestseller, Moving, the short story collection, Listening In and her latest novel Inheritance.
