Funny Woman landed on our screens in February 2023 with a bang. Based on Funny Girl, the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby, Funny Woman stars Gemma Arterton as a feisty heroine who redefines the prevailing attitude to funny women in the male-dominated world of the 60’s. Set against the backdrop of the Swinging Sixties, we follow Barbara Parker’s journey from Blackpool beauty queen to comedy superstar and nation’s sweetheart.
