Josie Long: Something Better

British comedian Josie Long is heading to York at the end of February, as part of her UK tour, to perform her new show, Something Better.

Following the international sell-out success of her previous show Cara Josephine across the UK, Europe, in Australia and New York, the star of BBC Radio 4’s Romance and Adventure, All of the Planet’s Wonders and presenter of Short Cuts tours her eighth solo stand-up show nationwide in 2017 and heads to the York Crescent on Wednesday 22nd February.

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 first time.

Josie Long will perform on the 22nd February 2017 at The Crescent York.
