Funny Cow

2018 British comedy film about a female comic. Stars Maxine Peake, Paddy Considine, Tony Pitts, Vic Reeves, Kevin Eldon and others.


Maxine Peake plays the gritty role of 'Funny Cow', a comedian who breaks through the glass ceiling of the all-male 1970s comedy circuit to rise to stardom. Set against the backdrop of working men's clubs in the North of England, Funny Cow is both a love-letter to a bygone era and the defiant story of a woman who refuses to give up her dreams.

Featuring: Maxine Peake (Funny Cow).
