Join Jo Brand as she takes to the road trying out new material along with her special guest, Andy Robinson at the legendary intimate grassroots venue Esquires.

Long established as one of the UK’s best comics, Jo Brand is the star and writer of Getting On, the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning series set on a hospital’s geriatric ward, which was partly inspired by her earlier career in nursing. Other television credits include, hosting eight series of Great British Bake Off: Extra Slice (BBC), Taskmaster (Dave), Have I Got News for You (BBC One), Would I Lie to You (BBC One), Jo Brand’s Hot Potatoes (BBC One) and the award-winning Through the Cakehole (Channel 4).

Jo has written several highly acclaimed best-selling books Can’t Stand Up For Sitting Down, Look Back In Hunger and The More You Ignore Me which was made into a feature film and released in 2018. She also co-wrote and starred in the sitcom Damned on Channel 4.

AGE GUIDANCE: STRICTLY 14+ Likely to be swearing and adult content

Esquires is one of the country’s finest and most respected small independent grassroots venues and for the last 30 years has promoted and showcased talented new acts including some of the biggest bands in the world such as Coldplay, Muse and Biffy Clyro. Not all music venues suit live comedy but Esquires fits like a glove and is a brilliant venue for intimate and vibrant live stand-up comedy.

Disability Access: Regrettably we are not currently a fully accessible venue. Our main stage is up one flight of stairs so some customers may have difficulty with this. Our ambition is to resolve this situation as soon as possible and we are currently investigating options. All promoters working at Esquires offer carer/companion tickets. This show is all seated.

Greyfriars Car Park (postcode
MK40 1JD) is a 3-minute walk away and it’s totally free after 6 pm and all day Sunday. Alternatively, there are usually spaces on Greyfriars road outside (again, free after 6 pm).

Travelling by train:
Esquires are just a short 8-10 minute walk from Bedford Station and you can get a direct train from Luton, St Albans, London (St. Pancras International) and all points in between via First Capital Connect.
