Josie Long's 'Something Better'

JOSIE Long's heading to Liverpool 13 March 2017, this show about optimism and hopefulness and about looking for people and things to look up to.... This uplifting show follows on from the international sell out success of her previous show:- 'Cara Josephine' that cross the UK, Europe, in Australia and even the USA! Josie, if you don't already know, is the star of BBC Radio 4's Romance and Adventure, All of the Planet's Wonders and presenter of Short Cuts tours her 8th solo stand up show nationwide in 2017.

Josie's 34. She thought by now that she would have children, and be in love, and have a country that didn't vote with the far right parties to march us all off a cliff. And that she would be able to do all the awesome stuff that activists do. She thought we would have won by now. Oh, and she wanted to be taller and better looking.

This is a show about optimism and hopefulness, about looking for people and finding 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 1st time. It's a bit about having faith in younger people, and friendship, and activism, and solidarity. Actually, she's been busy interviewing activists about what they do and why, so it's also about politics and making things happen. And there's probably a bit where she pretends to be a push button shower, so it should be silly and fun too, with a few exciting bits in it.

Josie presents Radio 4's popular short documentary series Short Cuts, which is also 1 of the top downloaded podcasts today. She regularly writes for the Guardian and has recently appeared on The Island (Channel 4), The Superhuman's Show (Channel 4), Russell Howards Stand Up Central (Comedy Central) and Dara O'Briain's Go 8 Bit.

So don't if you want to smile get in line and get a ticket now! To book your place for the Liverpool show, call the Epstein Theatre now on:- 0844 888 4411. For other dates and venues, along with more information about Josie, visit her official website.
