Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 31 May 2010.

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: The Autobiography 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? 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 and candour.
