Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that makes her say ‘biscuit’ 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life; one she’s about to unleash on the world.
Accompanied by her assistant Chopin, Jess intertwines comedy, puppetry, singing and incredible tics to explore spontaneity, creativity, life with a disability, and things you never knew could make you laugh.
Geranium bashing and Astroturf origami may or may not feature – no two shows can ever be the same. Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, and that’s when the anarchic fun begins.
‘Like the best comedy, it makes you look at the world in a different way. Remarkable’Independent
