Josie Long - Tender

Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and very-hard-to-pin-down-indie-underdog-nightmare Josie Long is back with a brand new show after a brief hiatus, during which she had a baby and so on.

How do you bring someone into a world that everyone keeps telling you is ending? This show is 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 year. The aim is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic about the future, although that is a big ask. At the very least there will be some really silly voices in it, and that’s not nothing.

★★★★★ The Skinny “Riotously hilarious…a uniquely optimistic hour of comedy”
★★★★ The Times “Brilliantly evocative, an original and unflagging spirit.”
★★★★ The Guardian ““Full of love and defiant joy”
★★★★ The Scotsman “Her excitability is as infectious as always…explicitly personal and positive…an hour of near constant laughs”
