Funny Cow

Funny Cow

Congratulations to Maxine Peake for BIFA's Best Actress Nomination in Funny Cow and to Richard Hawley for Best Music.

Starring Maxine Peake as Funny Cow, Paddy Considine, Stephen Graham and Vic Reeves. 'A woman with a funnybone for a backbone - Funny Cow' charts the rise to stardom of a female comedienne through the 1970's and 1980's. It is set against the backdrop of working men's clubs and the stand-up comedy circuit in the North of England.

From her troubled childhood to her turbulent adult relationships, Funny Cow uses the raw material of her life experiences to bring her unique style of comedy to the stage. A stand-up comedienne in an all-male world, 'Funny Cow' delivers tragedy and comedy in equal measure.

Written by Tony Pitts and directed by Adrian Shergold with Richard Hawley providing the soundtrack and music.

Reviews

The Guardian - Maxine Peake dominates the screen as producer and star of this painful, angry film written by Tony Pitts and directed by Adrian Shergold, about a fictional female club comedian fighting her way to the top, or at least the middle, in 1970s Britain.

Film Seekers - Funny Cow is a wickedly funny film, with a self-aware streak, capturing the zeitgeist of the era perfectly thanks to the fantastic attention to detail and set dressing.

One Room With a View - Funny Cow is literally Maxine Peake's show, as she narrates her tough life - and the film - from a later point of success through a televised monologue. Her no-nonsense honesty is reminiscent of a Victoria Wood piece or Julie Walters role, which puts the audience in the right headspace for the chuckles and struggles that lie ahead.

Sometimes Always Never

Sometimes Always Never is a drama about words and loss. It tells the story of family with an exceptional Scrabble vocabulary who cannot put their words to use and communicate with each other, and their journey to reconnect.

Channel 4 Idents

We've recently cast the new Channel 4 idents which were unveiled ahead of The Great British Bake Off 2017 final.

The new brand 'idents' are designed to "personify the broadcaster's unique values" according to Channel 4. The Channel 4 Giant will feature in short clips that air between the channel's programming, and take over from the landscape-style graphics that have been running on Channel 4 since September 2015.
