For the legion who watch BBC’s Two Doors Down, Doon Mackichan’s role as Cathy is a fan-favourite. Irresistibly funny and hugely admired, multi award-winning actress and writer Doon’s other comedy credits include Plebs (for which she was nominated for a BAFTA), Brass Eye, Alan Partridge and the double Emmy-winning Smack the Pony.

Reflecting on 40 years in ‘the business’, My Lady Parts explores the bear pit of the stand-up comedy circuit and highlights her determination to take on ground-breaking and challenging comedy roles while at the same time coping as a working mother in a business that does not exactly welcome babies and children.

Fearless and funny as ever, in her inimitable style comedienne Doon will talk about the ways in which society still expects women to adhere to certain stereotypes, calling for a radical rework of attitude for future generations.
