She’s currently in Tokyo covering the Paralympics for TV’s The Last Leg – but fast-rising comedy hotshot Rosie Jones is on her way to Whitchurch this November.

Rosie has been announced as part of an exciting triple headline bill, also featuring Phoenix Nights stars Justin Moorhouse and Barbara Nice, at the town’s Civic Centre on Friday 19 November.

Justin, who played Young Kenny in the Peter Kay classic, has also appeared on the likes of Live At The Apollo, while Stockport housewife Barbara, whose alter-ego Janice Connolly was Holy Mary, reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2019.

Before the Last Leg, Rosie was last seen on our screens hosting her own Channel 4 travel show, Trip Hazard.

Tickets for the show are now on sale and expected to go quickly.

Wayne Beese, who will be hosting the show which is coming to Whitchurch under the Funny Beeseness banner, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the line-up we have been able to put together for this show, and tickets are going out quickly already.

“Rosie appeared at the Civic a couple of years ago in support of Omid Djalili for one of our first ever shows there and really took the roof off. Her career has gone from strength to strength since then and she is now a regular fixture on our TV screens and well on the way to becoming a household name.

“Justin and Barbara will be equally well known to many and are always loved whenever we put them on, so I’m really excited for what promises to be a fabulous night of belly laughs. Get booked up and come and join us.”

Funny Beeseness are currently bringing comedy to Whitchurch every week with Whitchurch Comedy Festival, with Paul Sinha the latest big name to appear this Friday in a marquee on the lawns of the Dodington Lodge Hotel.

Rich Hall visits on Friday 10 September, while Henning Wehn and Russell Kane to visit Civic Centre on 19 September and 24 September.

Tickets are still available for all shows at funnybeeseness.co.uk
