Rosie Jones is a critically acclaimed stand up and a globe-trotting TV dynamo who was picked out at the end of 2016 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 Ri ofor the Olympics. She has also worked on 8 Out of 10 Cats does Countdown, where she answered an open call from her boss for jokes for Jimmy Carr’s opening monologue. “Listening to Jimmy Carr saying my jokes was incredible” she says. “But it made me think ‘Oh! He’s getting my laugh! I wanted that’”. She has since bolstered her writing credits on The Now Show (Radio 4) and a pilot for Andrew Newman's new indie Spelthorne Community Television.

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.”
