Funny Cow



Funny Cow

Saturday 6 July 8.30pm Channel 039

Maxine Peake gives a formidable performance as an aspiring female comedian in the sexist Northern England club circuit during the 1970 s. Ill-treatment by men is something our eponymous heroine is grimly used to, from childhood beatings to an abusive husband – her saviour is comedy, she is the funny cow, using the power of laughter to transform pain into humour. With an outstanding British support cast, Funny Cow is a fitting showcase for Peake, she's both hilarious and heart-breaking. A poignant film that will touch your hearts. Starring Maxine Peake (Three Girls), Paddy Considine & Stephen Graham (Little Boy Blue).
