The Public Review

Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that makes her say ‘biscuit’ 16,000 times a day.

After huge success at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this two-woman solo show weaves comedy, puppetry, singing and incredible tics to explore spontaneity, creativity, disability and things you never knew would make you laugh.

Geranium bashing and penguin gangbangs may or may not feature – no two shows can ever be the same. The proud continuity presenter for E4, Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, and that’s when the fun begins.


Stephen Fry

Please note: Jess is one of the 10% of people with Tourettes Syndrome who has swearing tics, so this performance may include the involuntary use of words that some audiences may find offensive.
