Jean Collins had two daughters. But she only loved one of them. She knew it was wrong, but she just couldn't help herself. Jess was a little sweetheart, everyone said so. Anne was awkward and serious and not much fun, to be frank. But now the years have passed. Jess is missing - run off long ago, no one knows where or why. So when Jean is left in a coma after a road accident, it's Anne who travels back up north to sit at her mother's bedside. And she wonders - why did Jean dash out into the road without looking? What distracted her?
"I laughed, I cried"
Here is Jenny Eclair's Perrier Award-winning show, filmed live at Her Majesty's Theatre in London and presented uncut. Eclair roamed the stage like a caged cat, throwing out comic incendiaries to the shocked but spellbound audience. Her topics included sex, women's magazines, why male stand-up comedians are useless in bed, food snobbery, theme pubs, smoking, and female flatulence. Though undeniably earthy and unashamedly coarse, this was top-notch observational comedy from a top-form performer.
Jenny Eclair and Julie Balloo return with a second series about being an 'older' mother. Cass Mason is finding motherhood age 47 tough. She barely has time to blog with a new baby who won't sleep; she fears she may be turning into a zombie. Not only does Cass have to deal with Florence, the rest of the family aren't much help. Will Ken ever get a job, will her designer-clad sister even offer to hold a drooling baby and are her two grown children really contemplating moving back home?
Jenny Eclair delivers a take-no-prisoners brand of stand-up that combines ruthless honesty and explosive bile, delivered with breathless energy and an engaging smile that, while not diminishing the power of her material, helps make it more palatable.
A late-night, adult comedy show presented by award-winning comedienne, Jenny Éclair. Filmed from the guest's home, the show takes an acerbic look at the world from Jenny's prospective with gossip and humorous conversation in an informal setting.
