In Detail

Since 2014, Jo has been the presenter of The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice. She's a longstanding regular panellist on Would I Lie to You?, QI and Have I Got News For You. She also presented Channel 5's Jo Brand's Cats & Kittens, streamed in the United States as Kitten Rescue. Other notable contributions include her roles in Damned, Let's Sing and Dance, Jo Brand Through the Cakehole, and Jo Brand's Big Splash, showcasing her versatility and comedic brilliance. Jo's contributions to the entertainment industry have not gone unnoticed, earning her four British Comedy Awards, a BAFTA, and honorary doctorates from the University of South Wales and Canterbury Christ Church University for her advocacy in mental health nursing.


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 Brand is an outstanding corporate speaker, brilliant event host and side-splitting after dinner speaker.
