Starring the brilliant Maxine Peake, 'Funny Cow' charts the rise to stardom of a female comedienne through the 1970s and 80s and is set against the backdrop of working men's clubs and the stand-up comedy circuit in the North of England. From her troubled childhood to her turbulent adult relationships, 'Funny Cow' uses the raw material of her life experiences to bring her unique style of comedy to the stage.

A stand-up comedienne in an all-male world, 'Funny Cow' delivers tragedy and comedy in equal measure. Maxine Peake plays the role of a lifetime as Funny Cow with Tony Pitts as her tragic soul mate Bob, Paddy Considine as her middle-class lover, and Stephen Graham playing two roles as her brother Mike and her dad. The film was written by Tony Pitts, and is directed by Adrian Shergold with Richard Hawley providing the soundtrack and music.
