Following the international sell-out success of her previous show Cara Josephine across the U.K., Europe, in Australia and New York, British comedian Josie Long brings her eighth solo stand-up show Something Better to The Epstein Theatre on Monday 13th March.
Award-winning comedian Josie is the star of B.B.C. Radio 4’s Romance and Adventure, All of the Planet’s Wonders and presenter Radio 4’s popular short documentary series Short Cuts, which is also one of the top downloaded podcasts today.
She regularly writes for The Guardian and has recently appeared on The Island (Channel 4), The Superhuman’s Show (Channel 4), Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Dara O’Briain’s Go 8 Bit.
Josie is 34. She thought by now that she would have children, and be in love, and have a country that didn’t vote with the far right parties to march us all off a cliff. And that she would be able to do all the awesome stuff that activists do. She thought we would have won by now. Oh, and she wanted to be taller and better looking.
This is a show about optimism and hopefulness, about looking for people and finding things to look up to. It’s about wanting more from life than it might be up for giving out. It’s about struggling with realising what you are, who you are and what you can’t change about yourself, and about really feeling like an outsider for the first time. It’s a bit about having faith in younger people, and friendship, and activism, and solidarity.
Actually, she’s been busy interviewing activists about what they do and why, so it’s also about politics and making things happen. And there’s probably a bit where she pretends to be a push-button shower, so it should be silly and fun too, with a few exciting bits in it.
Theatre manager, Rebekah Pichilingi, said, “Josie Long has been described as a real gem of the comedy scene so don’t miss her hilarious show!”
So book your tickets now and fall in love with this funny, friendly and highly talented comedian!
