Laconic commedian Jo Brand cancelled her show at Saffron Walden Town Hall in September because of illness. It has now been rebooked for Wednesday February 10 and all original tickets are valid for the new date.

The gig is a “work in progress” show for a forthcoming tour, or you could say a private view of the artist’s work.

Long established as one of the UK’s favourite comics, especially with children, even though she says her work isn’t suitable for them, Jo returns to her stand up roots this winter trying out brand new material in Saffron Walden.

Meanwhile, she has won a BAFTA for the BBC series Getting On, which she wrote and stared in, set in a geriatric ward and partly inspired by her earlier career in nursing.

She then put her cooking to the test on The Great Comic Relief Bake Off and became the host of a spin off, The Great British Bake Off – An Extra Slice.

In May, she presented the Have I Got Election News For You show on BBC1 the day after the General Election.

Her other exploits include 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 for the BBC’s Play It Again.
