Little Wander in association with Ebdon Management and 800 Pound Gorilla Media presents…
Join us for a one off special live recording of two of the last year’s most critically acclaimed shows! Off the back of two sell out tours, Jessica and Jen will be heading to Tobacco Factory Theatres for one night only to film ‘Wench’ and ‘The Optimist’.
Jessica Fostekew – Wench
A show about sexy things (awkward), private things (oh no) and a woman trying to sit on the face of time to keep it still (hot, right?). You’ve seen Jess on Live at the Apollo, QI and on Harry Hill’s Clubnite amongst other TV shows. She’s a regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist Podcast, the host and creator of The Hoovering Podcast and you hear her regularly on BBC R4’s News Quiz and Now Show.
Jess was nominated for the Dave Edinburgh Comedy Award – Best Show 2019 with her last show Hench, and she won Best Show and Best Breakthrough Act in the Chortle Awards 2020.
‘COMMANDING FORM, REFLECTIVE AND FUNNY IN EQUAL MEASURE.’
★★★★ – The Guardian
★★★★ – The Times
★★★★ – Chortle
Jen Brister – The Optimist
If Jen Brister has learned anything in the past 18 months, it’s that she’s no good in a crisis. (Unless you count getting into the foetal position in under 30 seconds.) Has the pandemic changed her for the better or is she the same old pessimistic naysayer she’s always been? I think we all know the answer to that. Let’s just hope she can make it funny.
“No one does furious better than Brister” ★★★★ The Guardian
“Her energy is explosive. Her use of space and delivery, mesmerising.” – The Sunday Times
“Furiously funny.” – The Guardian
“A phenomenal display of sinewy stand up.” – Chortle
