Janey Godley - Not Dead Yet

By Janey Godley

Janey Godley has been a determined fighter all her life - from her tough Glasgow childhood to becoming the much-loved comedian she is now. As she faces her diagnosis with cancer, Janey shares with candour and humour the good and the bad. Not Dead Yet is the story of how a mouthy female comedian finally overcame the prejudices that stopped her getting gigs to earn her place in the male-dominated comedy establishment.

Making her breakthroughs in London, where she had her own comedy club, and New Zealand, Janey took on another brave fight when she brought a case - and won - against the uncle who'd abused her as a child. At the height of her popularity, with a soaring online following through her hilarious political voice-overs, Janey was also the victim of much trolling. Some old Tweets were unearthed that might have seen her cancelled. Her spirit was nearly broken, but her fanbase stayed strong.

At the end of the long sell-out UK tour that followed in 2021 she was given the news she had ovarian cancer. Here she faces her fears head on and shares the very difficult journey she's on.

This extraordinary memoir celebrates everything Janey defiantly and hilariously is - against the odds - and confirms why she is so loved.
