Description

Meet Jamie Gee, inspirational stand-up comic with enough cutting edge to rival Boadicea. The punters love her-they call her Lennie Bruce in a dress-they think she's in control and mistress of her destiny. But Lily Carlson, Jamie's best friend and manager, knows better.

Professional reviews

"Joolz Denby's reading of this brutal, yet compassionate story will haunt you forever. When comedienne Jamie Gee meets Lily Carlson, her future manager, they little realize the heights and depths they will share. Jamie is known as "Lenny Bruce in a dress"; her humor is cutting but right on. When she takes up with the gorgeous Sean, everyone, except Jamie, can see he's seriously disturbed. Denby's delivery is inspired as she re-creates each character in a large, multicultural cast, including drag queen Mojo, whose parents go "all Islamic" when he reveals his sexuality. Jamie's dangerous boyfriend and the loving and faithful Lily are unforgettably presented. This violent story, filled with obscenity, isn't for everyone. But listeners who are open to it are in for a chilling story with an uplifting theme. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
