Jane used to be fun. By fun, she means drunk. She’s been sober for 15 years but still misses the buzz of that first, second, third, fourth drink. A frank and funny show about anxiety, sex, alcohol and that time she nearly vomited over Noddy Holder.

'An empowering experience.' Broadway Baby

'Hill has an eye for an elegant turn of phrase... charming, endearing, entertaining and it undoubtedly made the world a little bit of a better place.'

Jane Hill is a recovering alcoholic. She used, she tells us in various tales from her past, to be fun. But fun and alcohol were too linked, and when she quit one, the other seemed to vanish.

A career in radio makes the mis-spent past tales particularly interesting, from meeting her childhood heroes to how to sound-proof yourself against an awful act, there are lots of laughs to be gained from Hill’s time as a drunk.

She even manages to mine comedy gold from a childhood accidentally drinking, the church youth group, and life in an all-girls school.

Hill deserves a bigger and a better room – the tiny venue is so packed people can barely even lift up their drinks, and she had to turn people away. Throughout, she holds the room in the palm of her hand, with a stream of laughs only interrupted by knowing nods through the set-ups, erupting into laughs again at punchlines. The audience enjoyed her so much they almost forgot to drink their pints! Click Here
