Funny Woman

With Funny Woman Series 2 set for a 2024 release, we recently re-watched Series 1.It tells the tale of Barbara Parker (Gemma Arterton), a young woman from Blackpool who finds her voice in the male-dominated world of 1960s comedy.

With a swoon- worthy ‘Swinging Sixties’ backdrop, an all-star cast and a story based on the Funny Girl, the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby, this is an easy watch you’ll return to.
