In Detail

In 1992 Jo conquered the Edinburgh Festival where she was also nominated for the Perrier Award. Once a psychiatric nurse and now an established author, she has won various awards over the years, including The British Comedy Award for Best Live Performer, which propelled her to our TV screens, and onto nationwide success. Jo's other television appearances also include BBC's Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Absolutely Fabulous and Question Time. For a number of years Jo has hosted the BBC2 show:The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice.


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.
