We all have a picture in our heads of growing old. We see people who have lost their ability to remember, who are too tired to begin new and exciting projects, who are bolted to their television sets unable to walk without walkers or accept a new idea.
This picture bears no relation to modern reality yet many seniors let the specter of physical disintegration haunt them. They waste fruitless hours working on their appearance and their diet habits to LOOK younger when, in reality, the latter years of life can be the best and most exhilarating of their lives.
Learn how to open doors to adventure, create your own enriching experiences and channel the energy you once devoted to job and family into rewarding self expression.
Lynn is currently the oldest performing comedian in the world and has been dubbed “the new Joan Rivers” by the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Her current show ‘Not Dead Yet’ will bring her sharp and spot-on sense of humour to Prague and Brno through a compilation of frisky tales (as well as a couple of songs) about her lengthy life. On top of that, the comedian will also offer a Prague based workshop for starting comedians.
Being a bit of a late bloomer, Lynn started her comedy career at the ripe age of 71 and has managed to succeed in both America and Britain’s Got Talent and has also won several awards at comedy festivals all over the world. She recently also started a career in burlesque and performed in the combination hit show ‘Granny’s gone wild’. If that’s not enough, she’s also got two Master’s Degrees.
