Stand-up comedian Jenny Eclair was the first women to win the Perrier Award, the UK’s top comedy award. Since that, she has also found fame as the author of six critically acclaimed novels. Her latest, Inheritance, combines incredible poignancy and unforgettable characters, all with her trademark wit.
Her most recent stand-up show How to be a Middle-Aged Woman (without going insane) sold out in venues across the UK and as far afield as Australia. Her biggest theatrical hit to date has been co-writing (with Judith Holder) and starring in all three Grumpy Old Women Live shows, both in the UK and Australia.
She is the writer of the popular BBC Radio 4 series of monologues, Little Lifetimes. Jenny also co-hosts the Menopausal-friendly podcast, Older and Wider, with Judith Holder and has many TV and radio credits to her name including all the Grumpy Old Women series, The Apprentice: You’re Fired!, Alan Davies As Yet Untitled, Splash and I’m a Celebrity where she came third.
