Description

After a sell-out debut hour Rosie "triple threat" Jones returns to the Fringe with a big question: am I backwards, or are they? She explores the hilarious difficulties of navigating the world whilst being the only disabled, gay, northern comedian with quite the penchant for sexual aggression. Rosie's second hour is certain to be a hit. 'Smart, mischievous, laugh-out-loud funny' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Genuinely masterful' (Skinny).

Well what an amazing show - thank you - Rosie Jones!’
Thank you for taking me through the connection between Poundland, paramedics and pizzas / Pringles (snacks)
Hope you find that paramedic who isn’t called Ken too Rosie

Such a brilliant show. Probably the best comedy we saw all festival - thoughtful, naughty, sensitive and hilarious. Highly recommended!

I cannot overemphasise enough how much I enjoyed Rosie's new show. Absolutely packed with gags and a mischievous sense of fun, all I can say is I was laughing solidly for the whole hour and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

Rosie ‘Triple Threat’ Jones is a masterly performer, she holds the room in the palm of her hand with buckets of confidence and honesty. The Punchlines are filthy, profane and delivered with a huge grin. Everything is punctuated with … Read More ...

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 71 days ago

We first encounter the witty Yorkshire whirlwind that is Rosie Jones, as she bops along to what we assume is a silent disco, as she is adorned with massive red headphones. The first few moments set the tone for what will be an hour of edgy, provocative one-liners and anecdotes...

The Scotsman (3/5 stars) 73 days ago

After last year’s superb debut, inexplicably overlooked for a best newcomer nomination, set in motion the best, most intense year of Rosie Jones’ life, her follow-up, Backward, doesn’t really take her forward. ...

Rosie Jones describes herself as a triple threat: ‘I’m disabled, I’m gay, and I’m a prick.’ And all three aspects get an airing in her second full-length show, Backwards, although it’s probably the third that most defines her.  ...

Fest (3/5 stars) 81 days ago

‘Disabled, gay, and a prick’ is how Rosie Jones describes herself, and she wears that description with pride. She has Ataxic Cerebral palsy—the jokes touch on that—and her delivery’s paced carefully, a great comedic consequence of that is the way she lures the viewer into a false sense of security....
