Rosie Jones – Far From an Angel
A new voice on BBC Radio 4
Rosie has two defining characteristics. She’s northern and she’s a comedian. Straight from wowing audiences on BBC Radio 4’s ‘ Fred at the Stand’, Rosie is now ready to let her scathing, often dark stand-up comedy speak for itself.
Every day she is faced with a new audience, and each day she negotiates and manages the expectations of strangers. It’s hard being northern after all. Some may expect Rosie’s ataxic cerebral palsy to colour every interaction she has, but she’s past that and rightly expects society to move at her pace too.
This four part show is about Rosie’s view on the world, her experiences with friends and her aspirations in life. It’s about her failings and flaws, her personality traits and reactions. Of course, her unique prism features difficulties and events that you or I may not be faced with, but this short series isn’t about disability, it’s about getting a new perspective on the world from one of the sharpest wits we’ve seen in the last two years.
Rosie has a background in television production, and has written for ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’ and ‘The Last Leg’ and recently spoke on behalf of the Royal Television Society. She was a Funny Women finalist and has been mentored by Sara Pascoe.
Challenging comedy? Yes, but because of who she is, not what she has.
