SCOTTISH comedian Janey Godley – whose hilarious political voice-overs have seen her popularity soar sky high – has confirmed that she will be amongst a star-studded line-up at The National’s independence rally this Saturday.

The multi-award-winning Scottish comedienne, playwright, blogger , best-selling author and well-know supporter of independence is a popular addition to #indyref2020: The National’s Rally for Independence event.

The rally, which aims to fire up the Yes movement, will take place in George Square on Saturday November 2, with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed to address the crowds as the campaign for a new referendum next year kicks off.

Godley has performed her stand-up routine around the world, but has reached new audiences through her much-loved voice-overs of politicians from Nicola Sturgeon to Theresa May – or Big Tereeza – and Boris Johnston, often featuring the Sandras and a big soup pot. The attendance of the Sandras is unconfirmed.

She said: “I’m so excited to be part of this iconic day which will strengthen the bonds and show willingness to listen and to share our hope for the future.”

Richard Walker, Sunday National editor who is organising the event, added: “We are delighted that Janey Godley is taking part in our event.

“She is one of the biggest stars of Scottish comedy and I’m sure she will bring a very special flavour to our rally which is shaping up to be a major political event at a key moment in Scotland’s political history.”

The details of more speakers will be announced in coming days. On Thursday the First Minister said: “I’m really looking forward to speaking at the #indyref2020 rally in George Square – and I hope people from all over the country will come together and make Scotland’s voice heard.” It will be the first time in five years that she has addressed an independence rally.
