Jan Ravens: Difficult Woman

Friday, 17th November 2017

Doors Open: 7.30pm   Show Starts at: 8.00pm


Who runs the world? Fiftysomething women, apparently. 

Dead Ringers star Jan Ravens takes to the road with her well loved impressions of Theresa May, Nicola Sturgeon, Diane Abbott, Hillary Clinton and many others, including Kirsty Wark, Lyse Doucet and Fiona Bruce.

Why, she asks, are women perceived as Difficult when we are just being decisive, ambitious and tenacious? Well, come on, why?

On TV Jan has been seen in two series of Hebburn for BBC2, Skins, Love Soup, Big Bad World, Midsomer Murders, Bremner, Bird and Fortune, Big Impression, Alexei Sayle's Stuff, Carrotts Lib, The Grimleys, and of course seven series of ‪Dead Ringers.

‬She contributes to many topical programmes on radio and television such as Newsnight, Peston on Sunday, The Daily Politics, Mock the Week, QI, Question Time, Today and PM. She also wrote and presented her own programme on radio parody for BBC Radio 4Extra, Parody Please. In 2009 she toured the UK with her own show ‘A Funny Look at Impressions’ and more recently has completed a UK tour with Rory Bremner in his show 'Partly Political'.
