Described as the “very-hard-to-pin-down-indie-underdog-nightmare”, three-time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Josie Long started her comedy career at the age of 14, and went on to win the BBC New Comedy Award at age 17.
Long, who became a mother in May last year, will bed in Tender at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, before touring the show between January and June 2020, with further dates due to be added next autumn.
Her promoters explain: “Tender is about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood, kindness, gentleness, and joy – all in all, the edgiest thing you will see on the Fringe. She knows it is a big ask in this current day and age, but Josie wants her audiences to feel optimistic about the future even if it means pulling out her repertoire of silly voices!”
