Maxine Peake gives a formidable performance as an aspiring female comedian standing up to a violent husband and the sexist Northern England club circuit.
Ill-treatment by men is something our eponymous heroine is grimly used to, from childhood beatings to an abusive husband. But using the power of laughter and the ability to transform pain into humour, Funny Cow becomes a stand-up comedienne in an all-male world.
Directed by Adrian Shergold
With Maxine Peake, Paddy Considine
