Janey: On Screen & On Stage

About Janey: On Screen & On Stage

Hot from Glasgow Film Festival, Cosmic Cat and Hopscotch Films present a night of film and live comedy with Janey Godley. Kicking off with JANEY, the acclaimed new feature film about Janey’s life story and ending with a live stand-up show by Janey Godley in person, the On Screen & On-Stage tour is a one-off chance to see a Scottish comedy icon as she reflects upon life growing up in the harder side of Glasgow, overcoming personal tragedy to become one of Scotland’s most celebrated comedians.

Janey Godley takes centre stage in John Archer’s engaging and insightful documentary about the fearless and funny comic. Janey found fame for her sweary anti-Trump placards and became a social media sensation as she revoiced First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s Covid briefings. “First I was cancelled, then I got cancer,” Janey notes as she recalls being called out for racist historic tweets, apologising and then trying to rebuild her career before receiving her diagnosis. That didn’t stop her from going on tour and Archer interweaves fly-on-the-wall footage with interviews from people such as Jimmy Carr, Nicola Sturgeon, and Janey’s daughter, Ashley, that reveal details of a difficult Glasgow childhood.

This event is supported by Screen Scotland.
