ODEON says...
Funny Cow’ is the stage name of a female stand-up comic, working her way through the comedy circuit of the North of England in the 1970s and ‘80s. 

Trying to make her way in a world dominated by men, Funny Cow uses the raw material of her life’s experiences to bring her unique style of comedy to the stage, in her seemingly endless search for success and fame.
