Jenny Éclair: Jokes Jokes Jokes Live!

Presented by Avalon
City Varieties Music Hall
Jenny Eclair with her arms crossed wearing a pink and orange shirt and her signature black glasses against an orange background.

In celebration of the release of her hilarious memoir of the same name, comedian, novelist, and professional show-off Jenny Éclair comes to venues nationwide with a brand-new autobiographical show.

She’ll reminisce about everything from drama school, (mostly drinking cider and eating sausage rolls), sleeping with men who looked like they lived under a carpet, punk poetry, anorexia, bedsit misery, waitressing and not really having a clue about anything, to being the first woman to win the Perrier Award, becoming a mother, author, grumpy old woman, podcaster and nana!

Still gigging to sell-out crowds 40 years later, Jenny invites you to look back at what she can remember before she forgets everything. Warning: punk poetry, animal impressions and baritone nursery rhyme singing may feature.

‘Ruthlessly funny’
