Josie Long: Something Better

This is a show about optimism and hopefulness and about looking for people and things to look up to. It’s about wanting more from life than it might be up for giving out. It’s about struggling with realising what you are, who you are and what you can’t change about yourself, and about really feeling like an outsider for the first time.

Following a sell-out two week run at Soho Theatre, a sell-out off-Broadway run in New York and the international sell-out success of her previous show Cara Josephine across the UK, Europe, in Australia and New York, the star of BBC Radio 4’s Romance and Adventure, All of the Planet’s Wonders and presenter of Radio 4’s Short Cuts, tours her eighth solo stand-up show nationwide.
