Jo Brand in Stratford on Wednesday

Wellesbourne Airfield

With a temporary Work in Progress title, the show promises her usual blend of deadpan delivery, depreciating self-analysis and shrewd observation.

Long established as one of the UK’s best female comics, Jo is the star and writer of Getting On, the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning series set on a hospital’s geriatric ward, which was partly inspired by her earlier career in nursing. Her other television credits also includes Jo Brand’s Hot Potatoes (BBC One) and the award-winning Through the Cakehole (Channel Four).

Jo is multi-talented to say the least, from taking the part of The Sergeant of Police in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance at London’s Gielgud Theatre, facing the formidable Alan Sugar for Comic Relief Does The Apprentice and learning to play the organ for a sell-out audience at The Royal Albert Hall.

She has also written several highly-acclaimed, best-selling books, including Can’t Stand Up For Sitting Down, Look Back In Hunger and The More You Ignore Me.

Jo Brand is at Stratford ArtsHouse next Wednesday, 21st October, at 8pm. Tickets are £15 from www.stratfordartshouse.co.uk, or by calling 01789 207100. She also appears at Evesham Arts Centre on Friday, 30th October, at 8pm. Tickets are again £15
