Jo Brand: secrets of her success
10.30pm Channel 5
This week’s celebration of one of our fave funny ladies has a different title, but the formula is still the same.
It follows the self-deprecating comedian’s career from ditching the world of psychiatric nursing to hit the comedy circuit in the 1980s, and then right up to her more recent gigs as a panellist on Have I Got News For You and QI, and the host of C4’s Bake Off: An Extra Slice. Of course, there are contributions from famous faces, such as Alan Davies and Meera Syal, too. If you love Jo and cats, there’s another chance to catch Jo Brand’s Cat’s and Kittens at 11.30pm, in which Jo follows the RSPCA’S work with cats in crisis.
Jo Brand’s been making us laugh for more than 30 years from stand-up to Bake Off
