A documentary about Janey Godley will come out tomorrow and promises to have her classic “dark humour”.

The Glasgow funny woman will appear in the film Janey about the extraordinary life of the comedian.

The 63-year-old had cameras follow her on her 2023 Not Dead Yet Tour, following her diagnosis of terminal cancer.

It features reflections on a life which has encompassed being sexually abused as a child and her mother being murdered.

It also includes her career which has spanned cult online status, international tours and UK-recognition on shows like Have I Got News for You.

The documentary doesn’t shy away from her potentially career ending ‘cancellation’ when offensive historic tweets emerged, just shortly before she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

In the documentary film, Janey is touring with her best mate Shirley, and her daughter, comedian Ashley Storrie, who can currently be seen in the lead role of the brand new BBC Scotland/BBC Three comedy series Dinosaur, which she also co-created.

Their relationship is woven throughout the film, with Ashley capturing intimate moments on tour.

The documentary also sees Janey reviewing pivotal times in her life, with her trademark take-no-prisoners honesty and dark humour. Janey grew up in poverty in Glasgow’s East End.

Her mother was an alcoholic and as a child, Janey was sexually abused by her uncle.

She tells the story of her mother's horrific murder when Janey was 21, revisiting the river where her mother’s body was found.

At age 19 Janey married into a notorious family of Glasgow gangsters. She ran a successful pub for them with her husband.

Janey had always been funny and when she and her husband fell out with his family, Janey reinvented herself as a comedian.

A feature length version of the documentary, directed by John Archer and produced by Hopscotch Films with funding from BBC Scotland and Screen Scotland, was the closing film of this year’s Glasgow Film Festival.

John says: "It was a joy working with Janey over this past year and getting to know her.

"Nothing was off-limits for filming. She is a great collaborator, totally open and happy to make people laugh even about the bleakest moments in her life - and there've been a few.”

Janey says: “There’s a lot of serious bits that are a wee bit difficult for me to watch because it’s challenging, but what I love about it is none of it is rehearsed, it’s all genuine documentary – on the hoof - off the cuff – and it’s brilliant.”

You can watch Janey on the BBC Scotland channel and BBC iPlayer on Tuesday, May 14 at 10pm.
