The professional grumpy old woman Jenny Eclair is coming to St Albans. 

The British comedian, author and actress is on a UK tour with her hit show How to Be a Middle Aged Woman (Without Going Insane), coming to the the Alban Arena on Saturday, June 3, at 8pm.

In 2010 Jenny came third in the popular reality TV show I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here (ITV1), finishing behind Stacey Solomon and Shaun Ryder. She is, however, most well known for presenting Loose Women on ITV1.

In the new show she will be tackling questions such as, is swearing better than crying, HRT or boxercise –you decide, Jenny takes to the stage to explore some of the negatives that surrounds the ageing process.

For her the biggest topics to address are: Why are so many young people idiots? Is Chardonnay medicinal? And, how many episodes of Bake Off does it take to lower your blood pressure?

Jenny Eclair has been a stand-up comic since the last millennium. She was the first woman to win the coveted Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s Perrier Award in 1995 and reportedly hasn’t stopped banging on about it ever since. Apart from the stand-up comedy she is also a writer, saying “sometimes it’s nice to just sit down”.

Previously Jenny has co-written and starred in Grumpy Old Women Live 2: Chin Up Britain on Tour in London’s West End and has starred in a number of other West End productions including Steaming, Mum’s The Word and The Vagina Monologues.
