HOUSEWIFE superstar, Mrs Nice, is to perform in Ashbourne as part of the town’s two-week festival this summer.
Barbara Nice, is the alter-ego of Janice Connolly, a comedian who was spotted while in character at a show in Manchester by Bolton comedian Peter Kay.
Having since appeared in several Kay productions, including Phoenix Nights, Janice is back touring as her favourite character.
Mrs Nice, is the international fun smuggler and mother of five dealing in the naturally occurring comedic highs of daily life.
Warren Lakin of Lakin McCarthy Entertainments said: “A supremely funny character comedian who tours the country on behalf of the opinionated suburban housewives of Stockport, she invites you to forget your troubles, be happy and join her in celebrating the here and now and making our own fun in austerity Britain.
“She is worried that we are living in a world of ever diminishing friendliness where we keep ourselves to ourselves, heads down afraid to catch anyone`s eye.
“She wants us to stand proud, be open and look the world right in the eye - or we won’t feel the benefit! “
Mrs Nice will be performing in Ashbourne as part of Ashbourne Festival on Wednesday, July 3.
Tickets for the show are expected to be available online shortly.
