Lynn Ruth Miller uses the blast furnace of her life to gently boil down the huge amount of experience in the crucible of her mind, and leave us all with disarming golden nuggets that threaten our ideas of what is important and remind us that each precious moment is worth wringing every drop of life out of! She shows us, vividly, that life gets better as you get older, and teaches us, in her sneaky way, that being naughty is ok... 'Fantastic routine!' (David Walliams). 'Great spirit' (Alesha Dixon).

Full press release
Lynn Ruth Miller will celebrate her 80th birthday this year but this remarkable lady has more energy & drive than a room full of 20 year olds.
Based in San Francisco but performing internationally this indefatigable woman is an artist, a writer of books & columns, a broadcaster on both TV & radio, comedienne & burlesque performer. Her stage career began at 71 when she decided to turn her hand to stand up comedy, she claims that she didn't start sooner as she 'didn't want to peak too soon' and she has since become regular at both Brighton & Edinburgh festivals and performed her hit shows around the globe, most recently including a short tour in Russia and a turn on Britain's Got Talent where she wowed David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon whilst Simon Cowell pretended not to be amused.
Her new show, Granny's Gone Wild is full of songs & laughter with a little bit of pathos thrown in for good measure, she'll make you laugh, possibly even shed a tear & undoubtedly offer inspiration for living life to the full whatever your age.
