Welcome to Jenny Eclair's new stand-up show. After thirty years in the business she should vaguely know what she's doing? Professional Grumpy Old Woman, writer and panto star; Eclair has been round the block that many times she's lost count. You may recognise her from Loose Women where she is happy to be one of 'The Coven'. She is also a Pilates Ninja and a disgrace in her own kitchen. Touring as a stand-up gives Eclair enormous pleasure. It also gives her dreadful varicose veins, but most importantly it gives her partner (St Geof) a bit of a break. Help him keep her out of the house, by supporting this show!

Key climbs into his poetry clothes and leans against his mic stand for another hour. Now charming, he will recollect simple tales of love, gaze dead-eyed at the ladies, recite verse and do basic talking. A lot of fairly grubby water's sloshed under Key's bridge of late so he'll be churning that up. He's also fairly interested to lift the lid on Hollywood and there'll be some Indian poetry, Indian beer and, if he can get his act together, a spotlight. Other potential themes will be owls and maybe fairies.
