Stand-up Janey Godley ‘found a giant tumour in my ovary giblets and had to FIGHT to stay alive’

YOU may, like me, have recently followed Janey Godley on Twitter (now X) through the lows of treatment for ovarian cancer. So it’s great to see her back on the comedy circuit.

Stand-up comedian Janey is 'still alive, by popular demand' and will be bringing her emotive and hilarious new show Not Dead Yet to The Haymarket, Basingstoke, on Sunday, February 11.

There will be voiceovers and anecdotes, straight from the woman who wouldn't die or shut up.

Janey says: “The past few years has been like a giant Wordle game that has swept the nation, I went from ‘cancel to cancer’ in six weeks.

No, I didn’t smack a man live at the Oscars, in front of millions of people, but I have apologised profusely for historic offensive tweets from over 11 years ago and ended up as the torn worn out pass the parcel for tribal politics in Scotland. All my own doing, but now it’s time to laugh, live and celebrate after dealing this dreadful disease.

“I suffered severe mental illness during the online onslaught and while on my tour in 2021, I found a giant tumour in my ovary giblets and had to FIGHT to stay alive. Never one for the conventional path in life, I am still NOT DEAD YET and bringing my tour back on the road. So many stories of heart-warming love and outpouring of support to the occasional daily messages hoping I might die soon because … well I am a woman who answered back.”

Join Janey as she's back and doing what she does best.

Tickets are priced at £27 (includes £4 booking fee). The show is suitable for ages 16 and over. Contact the Anvil Arts box office on 01256 844244 or visit anvilarts.org.uk for more information.
