Melbourne International Comedy Festival proudly presents

Rosie Jones Backward (UK)

Following a Melbourne debut in New Order 2019, Rosie ‘triple threat’ Jones returns with her solo Festival premiere and a big question – am I backward or are they?

The former TV researcher explores the hilarious difficulties of navigating the world while being the only disabled, gay, northern comedian with a penchant for sexual aggression.

As seen on 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and The Last Leg.

'Beautifully crafted with no beat wasted and punchlines that take you by surprise. ★★★★★' I Talk Telly

’It’s hard not to leave this show totally in love with Rosie Jones. ★★★★' One4Review

‘Wickedly funny… an incredibly charming performer. ★★★★' Funny Women

Strictly for audiences 16+
