Synopsis

Charting the rise to stardom of a stand-up comedienne (Maxine Peake) in an all male world during the 1970s and 80s in 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, the film delivers tragedy and comedy in equal measure.
