Jo Brand

Since leaving her job as a psychiatric nurse in the 80’s, Jo Brand has built a huge following in the comedy world and is now often referred to as the best female comic in the UK, with numerous TV, acting and writing credits to her name.

Her first TV appearance was on Friday Night Live (1992-1993), and was the only comic who was asked back in the same series. Her hit Channel 4 shows Through the Cakehole (1993-1996) and All the Way to Worcester (1996) followed to great acclaim.

Known for her deadpan humour and clever wit, Jo makes an exceptional awards host, judge and speaker, perfect for any audience looking to be entertained.

The audience loved her…Jo had clearly undertaken research about the sector and made what is not the most exciting subject absolutely hilarious. She is so talented and extremely funny. We were really impressed with how flexible she was on the timings and generous in spending time with members of the audience, giving autographs and having photos taken. We would 100% recommend Jo to anyone thinking about asking her to host awards…value for money and pure entertainment!

The laughter never stopped the whole evening…at the finale, the audience would not let Jo leave the stage and cried for more. In true pop star fashion she resumed her position from behind the curtain and delivered a series of one-liners while the audience clapped and cheered.

We were, one again, delighted to have Jo Brand host our awards on 18 September. She entertained the audience, kept them going through the presentation of 18 awards and is such an easy going and lovely person to work with.
