Barbara Nice

“Raffle (Mother’s Day Special)”

Join the Edinburgh Fringe’s favourite housewife Barbara Nice for an evening of proper good fun. Entrance price includes a complimentary raffle ticket!

Barbara Nice was all-conquering in her four-part BBC Radio 2 sitcom broadcast in March 2017.

Experience this critically acclaimed tip-top character comedy live – from ‘Phoenix Nights’ actress and comedian Janice Connolly. A playful life-affirming show for all the family including the chance to win a prize off Barbara’s table.

With her enviable track record of garnering five star reviews and sell-out shows, Barbara will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step with this new show about chance and luck.


Barbara Nice – ordinary housewife extraordinaire – has given up the domestic bliss of Tupperware and Poundstretcher shops for the unpredictability of the comedy circuit (her husband thinks she’s at the bingo).

No audience is too rowdy for her to handle – she’s already raised five teenagers. She believes in bargains, Take a Break magazine, getting the most from life.

This well observed comedy character is so likeable that she draws even the most cynical of audiences and takes them along for a ride.

Barbara Nice is the comedy creation of Janice Connolly, Women & Theatre’s Artistic Director.
