Description

FUNNY COW
Directed by Adrian Shergold. UK 2018, 102 mins (15)

Q&A with director Adrian Shergold and producer Kevin Proctor

NB film starts promptly at 8.30pm

Watch one of our top screen talents in action, supported by cast of household-name actors in this Loach-influenced gritty Brit film. Maxine Peak excels as Funny Cow, a stand-up comedian trying to break into the 70’s northern comedy circuit against fierce male resistance. What’s the motivation? She’s wants to exorcise some personal demons, using her experiences as stage material. As Sight&Sound puts it ‘this is a drama about a comic rather than a comedy drama’, and that drama is a rollercoaster of a ride.

‘It’s excruciating and inspiring to watch in equal measure, and Peake is terrific in the title role.’ Charlotte O’Sullivan, Evening Standard
