Award-winning comedians will give a fresh take on ageing and retirement in a no-holds-bar performance at a Bristol venue.

Grumpy Old Women began life as a television programme which has now become a much-loved live comedy show, written by Judith Holder and Jenny Eclair.

Now the grumpy folks are back with a new and improved, tongue-in-cheek take on modern life.

Eclair, a Perrier Award-winning comedian, will be joined by Dillie Keane from Fascinating Aida and 
stand-up Lizzie Roper for a funny show of glorious grumpiness.

The ladies are now retired from the working world and will be looking to make the most of their retirement in this hilarious show.

Grumpy Old Women will be at Bristol’s Colston Hall, in Colston Street, at 7.30pm on April 20.

Tickets, priced £24.19-26.88, are available from or from 01172 034040.
