Funny Cow - "Maxine Peake is tremendous... an actor at the top of their game"

Victoria Wood. Julie Walters. Sarah Millican. I can think of few female comics from “the North”, but it’s not easy to reel them off. It’s a frustrating example of an industry that has always been dominated by men. 666 more words

The Death of Stalin review: Dir. Armando Iannucci (2017)

On first glance, The Death of Stalin is a peculiar piece. A comedic account of the political hoo-hah that escalated following the sudden death of the titular monstrous dictator, played out by a talented ensemble compete with not one Russian accent between them and a tone that teeters between dark dystopia and slapstick farce. 466 more words

Funny Cow ⭐⭐⭐½

Maxine Peake gives a stunning central performance as a fictional female comedian (though she looks like Julie Walters and reminds you of Marti Caine) who triumphs against domestic abuse as well as the sexist working environment of the working men’s clubs in the 70s and 80s. 180 more words
