Funny Cow

Running time: 102 mins

Coming Soon


Maxine Peake plays the gritty role of a comedian who breaks through the glass ceiling of the all-male 1970s comedy circuit to rise to stardom. After struggling to free herself from an abusive home life, Peake's character, known as 'Funny Cow', finds herself drawn to the stand-up circuit of Northern England's working men's clubs. FUNNY COW is both a love-letter to a bygone era and the defiant story of a woman who refuses to give up her dreams.
