Fringe 14 – Josie Long: Cara Josephine

Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and cult optimist is back with a brand new show about love and being as outdoorsy as a bear. This is by far her most personal show to date: with a new niece in the picture, Josie reflects on her own childhood and the resilience of an older sister. Oh, there are also some mentions about the Quakers and Walt Whitman too.

Star of Radio 4’s Josie Long’s All Of The Planet’s Wonders and Radio 4’s Short Cuts. As seen on BBC1’s Have I Got News For You, BBC2’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks, C4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience and more.

Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer winner, two-time Chortle Award winner, BBC New Comedy Award winner, Radio Academy Award nominee, Bafta Scotland Award nominee and Barry Award nominee.
