Comedy legend Jenny Eclair turned 60 this year , just before the UK went into Covid-19 lockdown. To celebrate reaching this milestone and the success of her brand new book - Older and Wider, which made The Sunday Times Best Sellers List over the summer, Jenny hopes and intends to get back on the road in 2021 with a brand new 60-date stand-up tour, Jenny Eclair: SIXTY! (FFS!), from 4th March 2021. Tickets will be on sale from Friday 4th September. See links below.
Having hit 60 (but still a year younger than Madonna), Jenny Eclair AKA 'The Face of Vagisan' confronts a new decade of decrepitude. Now that it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her DOB when she's filling in forms online, should she celebrate or crawl into a hole? What will her 60's hold for this 1960's babe and is it a legal requirement to buy Nordic walking poles?
Message from Jenny: "GOOD NEWS (HOPEFULLY). Hello friends, with any luck my new show, Jenny Eclair: SIXTY! (FFS!) will be touring the UK from March 4th 2021 just six months after we originally planned to kick off. With the tour being so rudely interrupted by a global pandemic, I'm really looking forward to seeing you back at a theatre near you, but only if and when it's safe to do so*.
*With this in mind we might have to push things back further, but hopefully not so far back that the title contravenes the trades description act!
PS, "I'm carrying quite a lot of excess lock down weight, which you can feel free to discuss behind my back during the interval. Love Jenny x "
