Show Info

At 87, Lynn Ruth Miller is the world’s oldest performing female stand-up comedienne. Dubbed ‘the new Joan Rivers’, she now travels the world telling inappropriate jokes and shattering stereotypes. Her autobiography, Getting The Last Laugh, is the extraordinary story of one woman’s determination to succeed. After spending her first seventy years finding success as an author, a newspaper columnist and a TV pundit, she stumbled into her new, life-changing career as a live comic by accident, and now for more than 15 years, she has travelled from one country to the next, in search of the next big laugh…

To be interviewed by Emma Kennedy, author of 11 books – one of which was turned into the BBC comedy The Kennedys – as well as countless comedy, children’s, animation and drama scripts for the screen and stage.
