Since the 1980’s Jo Brand has been synonymous with the best of British comedy, rising to the top of the industry at a time when female comics were outnumbered sixteen to one. We find out whether her grumpiness is an act, applaud her resilience in the face of some of the disgraceful things people have said to her, and discover her feelings about the place of “fat” jokes in a perhaps more progressive 2017.
Very strong language from the beginning of the episode.
