“I have used Purple Cactus to book a number of comedians for company functions. They provide a fantastic service and are a company I would recommend and definitely use again” – Halifax


Jo Brand

Long established as one of the UK’s best female 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. Jo’s other television credits also includes Jo Brand’s Hot Potatoes (BBC1) and the award-winning Through the Cakehole (Channel 4).

Jo is multi-talented to say the least from taking the part of The Sergeant of Police in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance at London’s Gielgud Theatre, facing the formidable Alan Sugar for Comic Relief Does the Apprentice and learning to play the organ for a sell out audience at The Royal Albert Hall. Jo has also written several highly acclaimed best-selling books Can’t Stand Up For Sitting Down, Look Back In Hunger and The More You Ignore Me.

Sussed, polemic, deceptively droll, with a razor-sharp perspective on all that is sexist and sizeist, her popularity is well deserved. On her latest tour, Jo tackled things that irritate her most, questioning the logic behind such diverse topics as teenage boys, keeping fit and sex.

Whilst subjects close to Jo’s heart such as feminism, fat people and chocolate remain a staple of the show, there are also the taboos. Her pet hates include supermodels, sad blokes, politicians and thin people – to name a few.

Aside from her award-winning Channel 4 show, Jo Brand Through The Cakehole, Jo’s other television appearances include: BBC’s Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Absolutely Fabulous and Question Time.

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.”- The Times
