Janey Godley: - Godley’s Cream 20 years and Counting 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 16, Aug 2018
Janey Godley has been packing them into her gigs for as long as I can remember and given the lines of people queuing outside for ages to be sure of witnessing her latest offering, there is no drop off in her appeal. Quite the reverse.
Janey introduces herself as more like a nosy cleaner than a performer prior to launching into a no-nonsense hour of laughter that appealed to everyone and the laughs flowed loud and proud as She shoots from the lip, says what she thinks and nobody and nothing is sacrosanct.
The show covers a few of her greatest hits from over the years, and boy does she have a back catalogue to draw from, but there is quite a bit of new stuff too.
She gets a lot of abuse on social media but it takes more than that to worry her. With a hard upbringing and early teenage life she has developed a thick skin. She still defends their right to an opinion as she wouldn’t want to be restricted in speaking her mind. Ms Godley stands up for the underdog like no other and is certainly not shy when it comes to voicing her opinions either verbally to Theresa May or with her signs made for Donald Trump’s visits, events that went viral on the internet.
The hour flew by and I am certain was enjoyed by everyone. Here’s to the next twenty years Janey.
