Janey Godley – Nobody spared [by Sharu Delilkan]
An impressive crowd was assembled in The Classic for Janey Godley’s entrance despite it being a cold and wet Monday evening.
However it was only when she got on stage that my husband realised that the woman who had been smoking right next to us was the one and only Godley. That basically sums Godley up – understated but with something to say. Further emphasised by the fact that she was outside 10 seconds after the show selling her autobiography, Handstands in the Dark.
Proudly Scottish, which some comedians would play more on, Godley is just naturally funny from the get-go.
Her off the cuff reaction to restless audience members who tried to light a candle at the table and who talk loudly to their friends, at the start of the show, make you a tad nervous to move in case you got picked on. But when the audience settled so did she.
