Funny Cow charts the rise of a female comedienne through the 1970’s and 1980’s industrial Northern England. From her violent childhood to her turbulent adult relationships, she uses the raw material of her life experiences to bring comedy to the stage. A stand-up comedienne in an all-male world, Funny Cow delivers tragedy and comedy in equal measure.

Maxine Peake (The Theory of Everything, Hamlet) plays the lead role, Tony Pitts (The War Horse, Peaky Blinders) her violent soul mate, Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz, Dead Man’s Shoes) is her middle class lover and Stephen Graham (This is England, Boardwalk Empire) her father.
