Janey is back and this time it's personal
Most important question first: Tell us about your show.
“Too Old for Telly” is just me squeezed into an hour; funny, raucous, bawdy and probably a little too honest.
Due to a lawsuit, you're forced to rename your show. What do you call it?
“Too Female For Telly.”
What inspires you, other than comedy itself?
I am often inspired by female Ukulele players. They’re so unique.
Is there anything in particular that you're looking forward to about playing in Glasgow?
I’m looking forward to being able to speak a little faster on stage.
Or anything you're dreading?
Every year I dread my daughter Ashley introducing the show, as she always finds some way to mortify me.
Where do you stand on Scottish Independence?
I’m all for a democratic and informed vote.
Who would get your vote as president of an independent Scotland?
Forest Whitaker. He was a really good king.
What's your favourite comedy festival in the world?
Other than Glasgow? The New Zealand Comedy festival is one of my favourites.
If you were organising a fantasy comedy night, who would you have as MC, support and main act?
In my fantasy comedy night I’d have Doug Stanhope as my MC, support act Lenny Bruce and headliner Joan Rivers
Who else are you going to see during the Glasgow Festival?
My daughter Ashley who’s in Man v Woman on Saturday the 31st of March in Vespbar.
Would you like to make a disparaging comment about the Edinburgh Fringe in order to appeal to the Glasgow public? (Don't worry, nobody will remember this by August) No
Regional current affairs. Fill in the blank space: RANGERS _______ LOL
RANGERS are people specially trained to traverse rough terrain, and who possess the relevant survival skills to live in the wilderness for a prolonged amounts of time LOL
