From the site:
Often described as a unique voice in comedy, Josie Long is one of the most respected comedians of her generation. She started stand-up at age 14 and soon after went on to win the BBC New Comedy Award.
Josie has appeared on multiple TV and Radio shows, including the UK programs The News Quiz, Just A Minute, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, The Alternative Comedy Experience, Skins, 8 out of 10 Cats, Drunk History, Russell Howard’s Stand-Up Central, and Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls, as well as Australia’s Thank God You’re Here, and Comedy Central’s @midnight and Night Train with Wyatt Cenac and Hidden America for Seeso in the US. Josie has also worked extensively in factual areas – she investigated the rise of online comedy for The Culture Show on BBC2 and is the voice of the incredibly popular Radio 4 show and podcast Shortcuts. Her audio series All of the Planets Wonders is in development with Stitcher Premium in the US.
Josie has performed stand-up around the world and her eighth solo stand-up show, Something Better, started in full swing in September 2016 with a sell-out two weeks at the Soho Theatre in London, followed by a two-week run at the Barrow Street Theatre New York. In 2017, Josie has continued her success on the road, headlining at San Francisco’s Sketchfest and RIOT LA in the US, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival in Australia, and highlighted by a sold-out show at the Duchess Theatre in London’s West End. Josie also recorded Something Better as an hour-long special for Live From the BBC, which aired in July 2017. Winning her rave reviews, Something Better is a comical and positive narrative on Brexit and the tribulations of the Labour party, wittily combining the political and the personal.
