Price £20

Join the trailblazing comedian as she discusses her life, humour and her achingly honest observational comedies.

Drawing from her background as a nurse, Jo Brand made painfully honest observational comedies such as Damned and Getting On, set, respectively, in the worlds of social services and a geriatric ward. Emerging from the furnace of alternative stand-up, her laconic and biting comedy blew apart preconceptions of what female comedians could be, and she has always proudly remained her own uncompromising self. Jo Brand will be discussing her influences and approach to comedy with producer John Lloyd.
