Brighton fringe: Granny's gone Wild

Lynne Ruth Miller presents her stand up show: Granny's gone Wild

Grannys Gone Wild was a big hit at the Edinburg fringe last year, due to its success, Lynn Ruth Miller has been invited to the Brighton fringe this year to perform it.

Lynn Ruth Miller, (now 77) raps, jokes and throws things; she's gone mad. This is comedy at its most outrageous, proof that when your body parts drop to your ankles, they still can swing.

Lynn began stand up comedy at the age of 70 and has been featured in venues throughout the Bay area of California. She produced and starred in her show, Weapons of Laugh Destruction with 6 rotating comedians at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2005 and was invited back to do comedy and art productions in 2006.

She has also performed her one-woman show, Farewell to the Tooth Fairy, (a 90-minute staged production of essays from her books) throughout America that originally featured at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

She followed it with two more storytelling shows, All About Me and Another Side of the Mirror. She presented these shows in Edinburgh, Brighton and at the Fresno Rogue Festival annually.

At 71, she began coupling stand up comedy with cabaret singing in a show called Aging is Amazing.

"If I can make MY dreams come true, anyone can," (Lynn Ruth Miller)

"Lynn Ruth Milleruses the blast furnace of her life to gently boil down the huge amount of experience in the crucible of her mind to leave us all with disarming golden nuggets that threaten our ideas of what is important and remind us that each precious moment is worth wringing every drop of life out of! She shows us, vividly, that life gets better as you get older, and teaches us, in her sneaky way, that being naughty is ok" (Eric Page: Theatre Feed, 2010)

"Lynn Ruth is wickedly scandalous as she struts across the stage and innocently drops her one-liners like bombs that leave the audience hemorrhaging with laughter." (Pia Johansen, May 2010)

"Ms Miller is a poster girl for growing old." (Kate Copstick, The Scotsman)
