“Catch her before she goes stratospheric” The Scotsman
International fun smuggler and mother of five dealing in the naturally occurring comedic highs of daily life. A supremely funny character comedian who tours the country on behalf of the opinionated suburban housewives of Stockport.
Mrs Barbara Nice invites you to forget your troubles, be happy and join everyone’s favourite housewife in celebrating the here and now and making our own fun in austerity Britain. She is worried that we are living in a world of ever diminishing friendliness where we keep ourselves to ourselves, heads down afraid to catch anyone`s eye. She wants us to stand proud, be open and look the world right in the eye – or we won`t feel the benefit!
Expect a friendly, inclusive atmosphere with home truths, great timing and unique comic insights into the human condition.
MRS BARBARA NICE is the comic creation of Janice Connolly – who played the cult character ‘Holy Mary’ in Peter Kay’s acclaimed C4 TV series ‘Phoenix Nights’.
