Most recently seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats (E4) and What Not To Say To People with Cerebral Palsy (BBC3 online), Rosie Jones is a critically acclaimed stand up and a globe-trotting TV dynamo who was selected by Metro as one of the Hilarious Women To Watch Out for In 2017 alongside Sharon Horgan and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She also has cerebral palsy – a neurological condition affecting movement and coordination – but that doesn’t slow her down.

She reached the Funny Women Finals at the end of 2016 ("a clear audience favourite" Steve Bennett, Chortle) and also worked on the team for Channel 4's The Last Leg in Rio for the Olympics. Her writing credits include 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (Channel 4), The Now Show (Radio 4) and a pilot for Andrew Newman' and Sacha Baron-Cohen's Spelthorne Community Television.

Rosie has also recently recorded Live At The Edinburgh Stand with Fred MacAulay which will TX on Radio 4 this summer.

Despite her background in production, comedy is where Rosie’s heart lies: “For me comedy comes hand in hand with disability, because comedy breaks down the fear of disability.”

 

"Set to be big in 2017 with her hilariously accurate observations on people's reactions to disabled people" Metro

"Her cheekiness makes her a compelling performer...a clear audience favourite" Steve Bennett, Chortle
