Jenny Eclair is back by popular demand with her "Mid Life Chrisis Show" at St George's Hall, Liverpool

FOLLOWING a sell out 2016 tour, professional grumpy old woman, Splash survivor, amateur soup maker, and novice knitter Jenny Eclair extends her hit tour into the Spring of 2017 and she is back in Liverpool.  Younger than Madonna, but eats crisps and likes wine, too young to die, but too old to stand near the edge in case she gets dizzy and falls over, professional Grumpy old woman Jenny Eclair announces:- 'How to Be a Middle Aged Woman (Without Going Insane),' which returns to St George's Hall's Concert Room, on Sunday, 5 March 2017, by popular demand. You are most welcome to join her, just button your cardi up properly and wipe that lipstick off your teeth.

Tackling questions such as, is swearing better than crying, HRT or boxercise; you decide, Jenny takes to the stage to explore some of the boll*cks that surrounds the ageing process. Why are so many young people idiots, is Chardonnay medicinal and how many episodes of ‘Bake Off' does it take to lower your blood pressure? Watch a woman happy to have lost her dignity years ago, lob a few grenades back in the face of ageism. Semi bearded and suffering from outbreaks of gout and hysteria, Jenny puts middle age under the microscope and decides whether to laugh, cry or buy a dachshund!

Jenny Eclair has been a stand up comic since the last millennium: she was the 1st woman to win the coveted Perrier Award and hasn't stopped banging on about it ever since. Apart from the stand up she is an acclaimed writer (sometimes it's nice to just sit down), her fourth book Moving was released in 2015 to critical acclaim and charted in the Sunday Times Best Seller List. Previously Jenny has co-written and starred in Grumpy Old Women Live 2: Chin Up Britain on Tour in London's West End and has starred in a number of other West End productions including Steaming, Mum's The Word and The Vagina Monologues. Jenny came third in I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here (ITV1) has presented on Loose Women (ITV1) and has done ‘acting' on Holby City (BBC1) and Skins (E4). Other television credits include: Splash (ITV1), Celebrity Masterchef (BBC1), The Apprentice: You're Fired (BBC2), That Sunday Night Show (ITV1), The Chase: Celebrity Special (ITV1), Antiques Road Trip: Children in Need Special (BBC2), Celebrity Fame Academy (BBC1) and Let's Dance for Sport Relief, (BBC1), where she reached the final alongside fellow Grumps Susie Blake, Lesley Joseph and Lunda Robson. Jenny has hosted her own show on LBC radio, and is a regular contributor on shows such as BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, Just a Minute and 7 Day, Sunday (BBC Radio 5 Live). Jenny Eclair is also the author of Chin Up, Britain, The Book of Bad Behaviour, Life, Death and Vanilla Slices and the co-author with Judith Holder, of Grumpy Old Couples, and Wendy - The Bumper Book of Fun for Women of a Certain Age.
