With her infectious laugh and high energy, newcomer Rosie Jones brings her debut hour Fifteen Minutes to the Edinburgh Fringe, at Pleasance This, throughout August.
During birth, Rosie’s shoulder got stuck. Well, it was her fault. It was the eighties and she did insist on wearing exceedingly stylish shoulder pads. As a result of this sexy shoulder slip up, Rosie didn’t breathe for fifteen minutes, which led to her developing cerebral palsy.
In the hour, she explores who she would be if those crucial first fifteen minutes had gone differently. Who is ‘able bodied Rosie’? Nobody knows for certain, but Rosie’s hunch is that she’s probably a knob-head.
Fifteen Minutes is an hour of comedy that packs a punch. It delves into disability, sexuality and, among other things, relieving herself in the most unusual of places!
Rosie has recently appeared on: C4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Last Leg: Correspondents and Things Not To Say To Someone With Cerebral Palsy. Rosie recently made her primetime debut, starring as Serena in a Silent Witness two-part special.
She was recently awarded second place in the Leicester Mercury’s New Comedian of the Year 2018, and was a finalist in Amused Moose Comedy’s National New Comic Award 2017.
