“A great comedian and an extraordinary life” Billy Connolly

Following its World Premiere as the Closing Gala for Glasgow Film Festival 2024, audiences across Scotland and beyond will have a unique chance to see Janey on the big screen followed by live stand-up from the woman herself.

Janey: On Screen & On Stage is a special one-off night of film and live comedy with the one and only Janey Godley, as the Scottish comedy icon reflects upon life growing up in the harder side of Glasgow, overcoming personal tragedy to become one of Scotland's most celebrated comedians.

Janey Godley takes centre stage in John Archer’s engaging and insightful new documentary about the fearless and funny comic. Janey found fame for her sweary anti-Trump placards and became a social media sensation as she revoiced First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s Covid briefings. “First I was cancelled, then I got cancer,” Janey notes as she recalls being called out for racist historic tweets, apologising and then trying to rebuild her career before receiving her diagnosis. That didn’t stop her from going on tour and Archer interweaves fly-on-the-wall footage with interviews from people such as Jimmy Carr, Nicola Sturgeon, and Janey's daughter, Ashley. Following the tour screenings, audiences will have the opportunity to experience Janey’s award-winning comedy in person as she steps from screen to stage to perform a live set, share exclusive and hilarious outtakes from the film and answer questions from the crowd.

“After all I’ve been through these past two years, the film has been the energy boost I needed to pick me up” says Janey. “I hope everyone enjoys the highs and lows of the documentary, there’s laughter and, more than anything, friendship. It’s a love letter to my pals and I can’t wait to see it on the big screen”
