Josie Long: Cara Josephine – European Tour

The three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and cult optimist is back with her new show about love and being outdoorsy as a bear. Following a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run in 2014 and sell-out UK tour in Spring 2015 – including two sold out nights at London’s Southbank Centre – Josie takes the show out on a European tour. 

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. Cara Josephine enjoyed a total sell-out run and was the overall best-reviewed comedy show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014.

Josie is the star of Radio Four’s All Of The Planet’s Wonders and Short Cuts, and a regular contributor to The Guardian Guide. She’s recently appeared on Have I Got News For You, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, the Alternative Comedy Experience, Just A Minute and many more.
