BARRY AWARD – MELBOURNE – NOMINEE - 2008 CHORTLE.CO.UK AWARDS – BEST BREAKTHROUGH ACT - WINNER – 2007 IF.COMEDY NEWCOMER AWARD - WINNER 2006 CHORTLE.CO.UK NEWCOMER AWARD - WINNER 2005 BBC NEW COMEDY AWARDS - WINNER 1999 SO YOU THINK YOU'RE FUNNY? - RUNNER UP 1999 DAILY TELEGRAPH OPEN MIC COMP - SEMI FINALIST 1999 Josie has appeared in Skins (including the forthcoming new series), which she also writes for. In demand both here and abroad, 2008 saw Josie performing sell-out shows at the Comedy Central workspace in Los Angeles, the Adelaide Fringe, the New Zealand Comedy Festival and the Melbourne Comedy Festival where she was nominated for the Barry Award. On top of this she was invited to perform Trying Is Good at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival this July. She also has two extensive sell-out UK tours under her belt and is still only in her mid-twenties.

Her distinctive voice, boundless enthusiasm and innovative shows have made her a favourite among comedians and audiences alike. In May this year she was selected by Stewart Lee to perform in a series of events entitled The 10 Best Stand-ups in the World... Ever. After the comedy world started to take notice of Josie in 1999 at the tender age of 17, when she won the BBC New Comedy Award and was runner-up for So You Think You’re Funny?, Josie decided to put her stand-up on hold to go to University. In 2004 she was selected to appear in the reputable Edinburgh Festival Big Value Show, creating a buzz with her obsessive and ridiculous stories, leaving audiences smitten with her innocent wonder and loveable madness.

In 2005 she performed at Edinburgh in An Audience with Dan and Josie and supported Stewart Lee on a nationwide tour. In 2006 she won the prestigious If.Comedy Newcomer award for her first solo show, Kindness & Exuberance. Josie is a regular on Radio 1's Switch show with her 'confuse the teacher' feature. She has been part of Robin Ince’s ‘Book Club Tour’, a guest on Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), Jon Ronson on... (Radio 4), Out to Lunch (Radio 2), Big Brothers Big Mouth (E4) and has performed in 28 Acts in 28 Minutes and Four on the Floor (Radio 4).

Other TV and radio credits include The Milk Run (BBC Radio One), The Last Chancers (C4) and Brain Candy (BBC 3). “There's a lovable romantic sensibility here, reminiscent of Daniel Kitson's, but without the accompanying acidity... heartfelt and eccentric..." - The Guardian “Very good, and not very trying.” - The Independent On Sunday “Wonderful... a perfect antidote to cynicism.” - Observer “Delightful... delicious...

a distinctive style... a magical hour.” - The List **** “A pleasure to watch... infectious enthusiasm... clever...” - Skinny Fest **** “A distinctive style, the stories are as funny as they are touching.” - 3 Weeks **** “Instantly likeable...

hilarious.” - Ed Fest Mag ***** “Endearing... amusing... hilarious... groundbreaking.” - Herald “One of the most upbeat comedians on the fringe.” - Ed Evening News “Excellent timing, delivery and an obvious ability as a performer...

you’d have to have a heart of stone not to leave with a broad smile on your face.” - The Stage “One of the most exciting female comics around.” - The Telegraph “Superbly clever... captivating.” - Metro ***** “Josie Long is the refreshing antidote to slick, male-dominated mainstream comedy... she’s fresh, original and boasts a gleefully absurd humour.” - Guardian Guide "One of Britain's bright new hopes of the comedy scene... an endearing blend of charm and wry humour...

full of joy and wonder." - Sunday Times Culture Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
