Having hit 60 – but still a year younger than Madonna) – she says she's now confronting a new decade of decrepitude where it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her date of birth when filling in forms online.

The stand-up was the first woman to win the Perrier Award – the UK’s top comedy prize.

Since then, she has also found fame as the author of six critically acclaimed novels and one non-fiction book.

Her latest, Older and Wider, covers the almost taboo topic of the menopause.

She is the writer of the popular BBC Radio 4 series of monologues, Little Lifetimes.

Small screen highlights include The Apprentice: You’re Fired!, Room 101 and I’m a Celebrity in 2010, where she came third.

Promoter Doug Taylor said: "We can’t wait to welcome Jenny for what will be a terrific night of peerless comedy."
