Since beginning her career on the London cabaret circuit gaining a cult following under the guise of The Sea Monster, Jo Brand has gone on to establish herself as one of the best female comics in Britain. Despite her wealth of television work including her own shows – Jo Brand’s Hot Potatoes (BBC1) and Through The Cakehole (Channel 4), Jo’s real passion is for performing live and she feels that “nothing tops the thrill of the theatre”.
In 1992 Jo conquered the Edinburgh Festival where she was also nominated for the Perrier Award. She has won various awards over the years, including The British Comedy Award for Best Live Performer, which propelled her to our TV screens, and onto nationwide success.
Sussed, polemic, deceptively droll, with a razor-sharp perspective on all that is sexist and “sizeist”, Jo’s popularity is well deserved. In her performances, she tackles things that irritate her most, questioning the logic behind such diverse topics as teenage boys, keeping fit and sex.
Jo is incredibly funny and a brilliant entertainer. Her inimitable style makes her highly sought after and in great demand at diverse events across the country.
