With her no-nonsense, down to earth style, Janet Garner turns preconceptions about ‘the older lady’ on their head. This woman is laugh out loud, spill your drink funny.
Her voice has been described as “a beautiful reminder of a London that’s all but disappeared,” but her comedy is contemporary and relevant.
Since giving stand-up comedy a go in 2014 and deciding she liked it, Janet has performed in such far-flung, exotic places as Southend on Sea, Brixton and Salford.
A force to be reckoned with, she is building up an unstoppable momentum. If you’ve already seen her…then you’ll know what the buzz is all about.
If you haven’t seen her… then do it… you’ll find out.
“Janet is the bollocks.” Russell Kane
“If Eastenders was anything like this, we’d all be watching it.” Mick Ferry
“In an industry dominate by white, middle-class males, Janet is a complete breath of fresh air. With an instant likability and East end-esq charm that can’t be taught, she can control a room better than some of the most established club comics I’ve worked with.” Ross McGrane
“Janet strolled onto the stage with confidence, armed with gags galore, she had the crowd in the palm of her hand and left to a huge applause.” Jimmy Bird
