Lynn Ruth Miller: Granny's Gone Wild

Who’d have thought one of the best times to be had would involve throwing sanitary pads at an octogenarian? At 80, Lynn Ruth Miller is an old-school entertainer, originally from Ohio, who weaves between colourful anecdotes, groan-inducing gags, bawdy singalongs and shrewd observations without ever showing the joins. The wonderful aspect of Miller’s set – 2013 winner of TO&ST, the Time Out & Soho Theatre Edinburgh Cabaret Award – is that she utterly embraces her age, mining the experience of getting older for material on everything from sex and drugs to failing bodies and seizing the day, without the slightest shred of sentimentality or solemnity – and in terms of demanding and rewarding an audience's conversational engagement, she could write the book. Frankly, you’d do well to keep up. It’s hard to imagine anyone leaving without a grin on their face and a spring in their step – and when it comes to sanitary pads, Miller can dish it out just as well as she takes it.
