The result is a visionary piece of theatre which defies sentimentality”

The Stage

As Funny As Cancer is Beth’s extraordinary story of her experiences with cancer which she turned into a stand-up show. So many audience members had a story to tell Beth after the show, including the woman who had come directly from her Doctor, having just been diagnosed with breast cancer. Time again she was told how important it was for fellow sufferers and survivors as well as friends and family of those affected, to be able to laugh about what is happening to them. This show led Beth to appear on ITV’s Loose Women, BBC Radio 4’s Midweek’s pick of the fringe, Front Row, The Guardian Website, NZTV, and BBC’s New Best Thing.

As Funny As Cancer is a bodacious and ballsy look at her battle with breast cancer. We get to hear the tale of her Stoke-on-Trent family – The Waltons on Alcohol, her time with Nelson Mandela, acting and thieving at the Royal Shakespeare Company, settling down with Michael Jackson and finding cancer. Not to mention her producing two football teams from her womb. And all before the age of 30!
