Jo Brand

Jo Brand is one of the UK's most famous comediennes. Known for her acerbic wit, Jo Brand makes an exceptional awards host for any audience looking to be entertained by her biting humour, and sharp observations. 

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.

The best female comic in Britain.
The Mirror

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 as when she co-created, wrote and started in the BBC Four show Getting on, for which she won a BAFTA in 2011. More recently she has also co-written and stars in Damned (Channel 4), a sitcom which follows he lives of a set of social workers, and co-stars Alan Davies.

Jo is also author of several books, both fiction and non-fiction, alongside two autobiographies.

Jo’s acerbic wit, combined with her deadpan delivery, make her an idea choice for awards hosting, and more.
