Jo Brand as one of Britain's best loved comedians has a wickedly dry sense of humour and this comes across loud and clear in her biography. Hers is a fascinating story having swapped a career as a psychiatric nurse for a more daunting career in stand-up comedy. She is a great story teller, with laugh out loud moments as she covers her formative years and the highs and lows of her career to date.

Look Back in Hunger Synopsis

Jo Brand is one of Britain's funniest and best-loved comedians. With a sharp eye for the absurd and in her own unique voice she tells her story for the first time. What possessed her to become a professional comedian in the cut-throat world of stand-up comedy after ten years as a psychiatric nurse? How did she deal with late night drunken audiences? Raised in middle class comfort, she left home in her teens to live with someone entirely inappropriate. Her parents were aghast at her behaviour and attempted to rein in her excesses, finally giving up when she demonstrated that she was not headed for the life of a nun. From her early years growing up in a small south coast town with two brothers who toughened her up, to emerging on stage as 'The Sea Monster', Jo Brand tells it like it is with wit, candour and a wonderful sense that life can be ridiculous but there's always a funny side.
