Janey Godley - "Tell It Like It Is"



Janey Godley takes you on a rollercoaster ride of hilarious, sometimes shocking but always true stories for an evening of comedy you are unlikely to forget.

Funny, dark yet warm tales of growing up in the near-Dickensian poverty of Glasgow’s tough East End, being abused as a child, marrying into a gangster family and running a pub in the city’s roughest area, an extraordinarily violent and drug ravaged red-light district where even crucifixion was not unknown.

Sometimes it actually passed as Friday night entertainment – as Janey says ”It was cheaper than hiring a band and attracted the same crowds”.

An incredibly original stand-up, Janey has won international awards and received world-wide rave reviews. She also writes a weekly column in Scotland’s premier newspaper The Scotsman and her autobiography HANDSTANDS IN THE DARK” was a UK top ten bestseller.
