Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
One of the highlights of the evening, I saw Rosie Jones do a ten minute slot for the Off The Kerb showcase at The Comedy Store, London in April 2018. I saw her again at Always Be Comedy in May and June where Jones performed her Edinburgh preview show. Her confidence soared on stage as she delivered one great funny punchline after another drawing the audience into her world. Jones had a very inspiring and playful way of piercing the audience’s natural suspicion about laughing at a disabled woman with cerebral palsy. Her slow speech made the audience listen and the pay-off punchlines to her stories were uproariously funny.
After a very successful Edinburgh Fringe, I saw Jones again at Always Be Comedy in November 2018. Jones has left the stage every-time to a well-deserved massive cheer from the crowd.
I was delighted to see Jones on the bill for the Edinburgh Comedy Allstars at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2019 and then again for Always Be Comedy in September 2019 where she was very endearing and very funny with the audiences who warmed to her style of comedy.
Over time, it has been wonderful to see Jones flourish as a brilliant comedian.
