Be Honest with Jojo & Bruce

We’re only six episodes into the podcast Be Honest with Jojo & Bruce, and Jojo Sutherland and Bruce are already showcasing their natural ability to make people laugh. These short, sharp episodes are the perfect antidote to life.

Jojo & Bruce come together from successful stand-up and broadcasting careers, with several awards and many more sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows between them. It’s therefore no surprise that when you put them in a room together, sparks fly. And let me tell you, they are very honest!

They’ve also dipped their feet into interviewing special guests, with their recent episode - #CancelKarenDunbar - featuring Scottish comedy icon Karen Dunbar. They do what the podcast says on the tin - have an open and honest conversation, with a sense of urgency and fun.

If you need a dose of laughter alongside total honesty and authenticity, then Be Honest is the next podcast you need to subscribe to. They’ve been honest about being found short on the way to the toilet, Twitter trolls, gossiping, complaining and carpooling and we know there is much more to come in this tour-de-force of podcasts.

You should get on the Be Honest train early, before they end up shooting for the stars, because we can definitely see this being a proper staple in British comedy podcasts. It won’t be long before Jojo & Bruce are regulars on Mock the Week, Have I Got News For You and more.

Their first-ever live show is coming to the Glasgow International Comedy Festival on 13th March at The Stand Comedy Club, Glasgow. They promise sharp honesty and brutal candour, in a girthier format with three special guests - BBC weatherwoman Judith Ralston, The Sun’s Features Editor Simon Houston, and Dominatrix-turned-power-coach Megara Furie.

Tickets are just £5 for this 2pm show, available at:

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
