Josie Long: Tender
  • Brighton

Three time Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Josie Long is back with her most critically-acclaimed show to date

After a brief hiatus, during which she had a baby, started bringing the baby up, and found herself in the middle of a global pandemic with quite a few questions.

How do you bring someone into a world which people kept telling you was ending even before 2020 happened, and where our day-to-day reality is now baffling enough for an adult, let alone a baby? This show is about the mind-bending intensity of new motherhood (in, and out of, a pandemic) - but mostly about kindness, gentleness, and joy. The aim, even though it sounds like a big ask, is for you to come out of it feeling optimistic for the future. At the very least, there are some funny voices in it, and that's not nothing.

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 review 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.
