Janey Godley is back in her new show - ‘Domestic Godley’

Scotland’s ‘female Billy Connolly’, Janey Godley needs little introduction after four previous appearances at the NZ International Comedy Festival including a sellout season at The Basement Theatre in 2008.

In 2009 Janey is looking forward to her first season at The Classic, New Zealand’s home of live comedy , and once again, this relentlessly prolific writer, author, journalist, actress and comedienne will be bringing a new show, ‘Domestic Godley’.

In 2008 The Times UK voted Janey # 3 on their Top 10 List of UK comedians. Just the latest in a string of awards and honours that can be seen on her extensive web site www.janeygodley.co.uk where this short extract attempts to capture some of the essence that is Janey;

‘Janey was born on 20th January 1961 and brought up in Shettleston, in the East End of Glasgow. Aged 5-13, she was raped and sexually abused by her uncle. Aged 19, she married into a Glasgow gangster family; 27 years later, she remains married to her husband, who has Asperger's Syndrome - a mild form of autism. Her mother was murdered by a psychopathic boyfriend when Janey was 21. Her mother's killer, though known, was never prosecuted. For 14 years, Janey and her husband ran a pub in the Calton area of Glasgow's East End, an extraordinarily violent and drug-ravaged red-light district where even crucifixion was not unknown’.

“The most outspoken female stand-up in Britain” Daily Telegraph UK
"Some of the sharpest-elbowed comedy in the world" - New York Times.
"Fully ensconced as the Godmother of Scottish Comedy... truly inspired... she's not afraid to say the virtually unsayable" The Scotsman
