Description

Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very hard to pin down indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is back with a new show for the first time in five years. It's about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy. All in all, the edgiest thing you will see this Fringe. The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that's a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices, and that’s not nothing. **** 'Brilliantly evocative, an original and unflagging spirit' (Times).

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 26 days ago

Josie Long has spent twenty years being a beacon of hope amongst the cynical cruelty of stand-up comedy. Providing light relief for anyone tired of droll sarcasm, she has never failed to look on the bright side. Audience members would be forgiven for thinking that may change this year as...

Josie Long is back with her first fringe show in five years and the crowded room is a testament to how much she’s been missed. This show dances between the apocalyptic and the optimistic, thankfully with enough of a dose … Read More...

Chortle (4/5 stars) 35 days ago

This is an essay on childbirth from a very important position. One that asserts that having a baby is neither 100 per cent idealistic, blissful beauty at every turn, nor the cold, cynical sheer pain that’s equally spouted. It’s about restoring faith in humanity and the future, something Josie Long...
