Comedian and writer Jo Brand joins us to talk about her darkly funny guide to life as a woman.
Born Lippy: How to do Female is a collection of all the things that Brand wishes she had known earlier in life, from how to manage a bully to surviving your family, what no-one tells you about the female body, what to do when it all goes wrong and staying sane.
Long established as one of the UK’s best comics, Jo has numerous acting, writing and stand up appearances to her name, including Channel 4’s award winning Through the Cakehole and Getting On, the BBC’s BAFTA award winning TV series set on a hospital’s geriatric ward, which was partly based on Jo’s career in nursing. Not to mention appearances on QI, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Have I Got News for You and Would I Lie To You. Jo has also written several highly acclaimed best-selling books.
