Inimitable queen of the quip Jo Brand is coming to the Festival to share her hilarious and highly useful guide to life: your family and how to survive it, how not to fall in love, heckling as a life skill, and many other handy insights – everything Jo’s learned, or wishes she’d learned sooner, or hopes to learn at some point in the future. If she can take down the panellists on Have I Got News for You, she should be able to sort out the rest of us. Sardonic and unmissable.
In conversation with journalist, critic and broadcaster Alex Clark
