Janey Godley Life

Janey Godley (born 20 January 1961) is a Scottish stand-up comedian and writer from Calton, Glasgow.

Early life

Jane Godley is the youngest of four children born to Annie and Jim Currie. She was born on Kenmore Street in Shettleston, a district in Glasgow's East End, and attended Eastbank Academy. Godley left school at 16 with no qualifications despite living in poverty, which was rampant in the East End at the time. Her parents were alcoholics, and her mother was also addicted to tranquilizers.

Godley and her sister, Ann Crawford, were sexually assaulted by their maternal uncle, David Percy. Percy, who was 12 years older than Godley, molested her and her sister for a number of years throughout their childhoods. Percy was charged with the crimes in 1993, but was later found guilty and sentenced to two years in jail in 1996.

In 1980, Godley married Sean Storrie at the age of 19. Storrie, who has Asperger's syndrome, was born in a Glasgow gangster family. Ashley Storrie (born 1986), a boy with autism spectrum disorder, is a stand-up comedian and BBC Radio Scotland host. During the 1980s and 1990s, Godley and her husband and his family owned a public house in Calton, Glasgow.

In 1982, when Godley was 21, her mother died after drowning in the River Clyde. She believes her mother was killed by her enraged boyfriend. Despite calls for an investigation by her relatives, Annie Currie's death was never investigated by police.

Mij Currie's brother died of a heroin-related disease on December 31.


Janey Godley Career


In 1994, Godley began her acting career. Godley said to her husband: "I don't want to be Janey Storrie any more because your family let me down, and I don't want to be Janey Currie because my family let me down." I'm going to use my middle name and legally become Janey Godley. The Godleys are the only family that haven't told me down because I don't know them." In 1995, Janey Godley Storrie changed her name from Janey Godley Storrie to Janey Godley.

In 2002, she received an award for "Best Show Concept" at the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, as well as the 2006 "Spirit of the Festival." Handstands in the Dark, her autobiography, was released in 2005. She was a finalist for the Edinburgh Evening Times' "Scot Woman of the Year" award in 2006.

River City, Sam Delaney's News Thing, The Alex Salmond Exhibition, Have I Got News for You, and Traces are among her television appearances. In the film Wild Rose, she appears.

Godley does spoof voice-overs of films all the time. Godley produced and starred in Alone, a short film about a newly widowed housewife whose violent husband died of COVID-19 as part of the National Theatre of Scotland's Scenes for Survival web series. The Royal Society of Edinburgh praised Godley's voice-overs of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's COVID-19 briefings in December 2020 for assisting the public in understanding the warnings.

She was named Speaker of the Year by the Scottish Language Award in 2020.

The Daily Beast revealed that Godley had tweeted in the past in September 20, prompting MSP Douglas Lumsden to question the decision to cast her in a pantomime version of Beauty and the Beast.

CHRISTOPHER STEVENS on last night's TV: warm memories of cold soup, candlelight and power cuts

CHRISTOPHER STEVENS: The Blitz spirit, as we discovered during the pandemic, is more myth than memory now. As Covid struck, a world that had defied the Luftwaffe's bombs remained indoors, baked sourdough. . . And now, is itching to be out. In lieu, we've now become a world that harks back to the 1970s' power cut and miners' strike. If you think this is bad,' we suggest, you should have been around 50 years ago, with cold soup for supper, and homework by candlelight.' It's no wonder that we've become so defeated. I'm not sure what it'll be like in another half of a century, when Generation Z is collecting their pensions and getting nostalgic about the 2020 lockdown, but I don't like to worry. A number of celebrities and former politicians were musing on the 'Blackouts Of '74: When Britain Went Dark (Ch5).
