Jo Brand Biography

One of the finest comediennes on the stand-up circuit, she is a great choice for any event particularly for those live corporate events that need that extra bite!

Born in Kent, Jo's first job was at Dr Barnardo's home, following in the footsteps of her mother, a social worker. After this, she moved to London and became a psychiatric nurse. Dealing on a daily basis with drug addicts, alcohol abuse and the clinically depressed, it was her sense of humour that kept her going.

Leaving nursing behind, Jo turned to stand-up comedy, breaking onto mainstream broadcast with her critically acclaimed ‘Through the Cakehole’ series.

A regular on shows such as Have I Got News for You and QI, Jo has also been a judge on ITV’s Splash!, and presented The Great British Bake off: An Extra Slice.

Jo has also made a name as writer and actress...
