Comedian Josie Long on tour with her new show 'Tender'




Three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Josie Long performs at the Lincoln Engine Shed on Thursday, March 19.

Her brand-new show 'Tender' is about the 'mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, but it also about kindness, gentleness and joy'.

A cult-optimist herself, Josie wants her audiences to feel optimistic about the future, although in this current day and age, she knows that’s a big ask.

At the very least there will be some silly voices, her PR explains - because it's Josie Long.

Having started performing comedy at just 14, Josie went on to win the BBC New Comedy Award, Chortle Best Newcomer, Best Newcomer at the 2006 Edinburgh Comedy Awards and was then nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards three years running. She has since sold out West End runs, performed at prestigious comedy festivals around the world, written five solo tours and sold out shows in LA and New York.

On screen, she's been seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and Skins (Channel 4), for which she also wrote, plus more.

Doors open for the show at 7pm. To book go to: www.engineshed.co.uk
