A comedian and Loose Women presenter will be bringing her latest stand-up tour to Hertfordshire next month with dates in Potters Bar and St Albans.

Jenny Eclair is back on tour with her hit new comedy show, How To Be A Middle Aged Woman (Without Going Insane).

The tour can be seen at the Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Bar on Thursday, June 1, and then in St Albans at The Alban Arena on Saturday, June 3 at 8pm.

Following a sell-out autumn tour, professional grumpy old woman, Splash survivor, amateur soup maker and novice knitter Jenny Eclair is younger than Madonna but eats crisps and likes wine.

Semi-bearded and suffering from outbreaks of gout and hysteria, Jenny puts middle age under the microscope and decides whether to laugh, cry or buy a dachshund.

Fans are most welcome to join her, just button your cardi up properly and wipe that lipstick off your teeth!

Jenny Eclair has been a stand-up comic since the last millennium.

She was the first woman to win the coveted Perrier Award and hasn’t stopped banging on about it ever since.

Apart from the stand-up, she is an acclaimed writer. Her fourth book, Moving, was released in 201 5 to critical acclaim and charted in the Sunday Times Best Seller List.

Previously Jenny has co-written and starred in Grumpy Old Women Live 2: Chin Up Britain on Tour in London’s West End and has starred in a number of other West End productions including Steaming, Mum’s The Word and The Vagina Monologues.

She came third in I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! and has presented on Loose Women and has done ‘acting’ on Holby City and Skins.

Her other television credits include Splash, Celebrity MasterChef, The Apprentice: You’re Fired, That Sunday Night Show, The Chase: Celebrity Special, Antiques Road Trip: Children in Need Special, Celebrity Fame Academy, and Let’s Dance for Sport Relief, where she reached the final alongside Susie Blake, Lesley Joseph and Linda Robson.

Jenny has hosted her own show on LBC radio, and is a regular contributor on shows such as BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Just a Minute and 7 Day Sunday.
