Horsebridge Comedy: Virginia Ironside

When an agony aunt reaches sixty, she can lie like a trooper, jump off a bridge or take to the stage.

In Virginia Ironside’s case, she’s still an agony columnist, for the Independent and writes a column for the Oldie, but she also performs her own one-woman show, ‘Growing Old Disgracefully’. The show arose from performing at literary festivals to publicise her book, ‘No! I Don’t Want to Join a Bookclub!’ but now, a few years later, her new book has come out, ‘No! I Don’t Need Reading Glasses!’ and she’s still on the road.

In her show she explains why unlimited free drugs, fun funerals, grandchildren and sex, or even better, no sex, make the sixties the best (and funniest) time of your life.
