ANOTHER big comedy name will come to Evesham in October when Jo Brand brings her acerbic wit to the town’s arts centre.

Brand will mark her return to stand-up with a ‘Work in Progress’ show on October 30 for which tickets are already sold out.

Long established as one of the UK’s best comics Jo Brand returns to her stand up roots this winter trying out brand new material.

In her break from stand-up Jo has written and starred in the BBC’s series Getting On, for which she won a BAFTA, set on a hospital’s geriatric ward and partly inspired by her earlier career in nursing.

Jo’s other television credits also includes ‘Jo Brand’s Hot Potatoes’ (BBC1) and the award-winning ‘Through the Cakehole’.

She continues to appear on shows including ‘QI’, ‘Countdown’, ‘Would I Lie To You’, ’8 Out of 10 Cats’, and ‘The Matt Lucas Awards.’

The multi-talented to say the least from taking the part of The Sergeant of Police in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance at London’s Gielgud Theatre to facing the formidable Sir Alan Sugar for ‘Comic Relief Does the Apprentice’.
