Here’s what Josie Long – Famous Comedian’s clients said:

One of Britains bright new hopes of the comedy scene.
Sunday Times

A terrible cartoonist but enchanting stand-up.
The Herald

Young and bubbly……there was an immediate sense this was a comedian of a higher order.
Fest (2005)

Like sitting next to the nutter on the bus, but safe in the knowledge shes not a dangerous one.

Josie Longs show is unpolished, rambling and lovely; just the way she hoped it would be.

It is rare to emerge from a comedy show feeling as though you have seen something genuinely life affirming rather than slightly sordid. Kindness and Exuberance is not just the exception to the rule – it is breezy and attractively presented plea for optimism and an entreaty to enjoy the more unusual but simple pleasures in life (quirky) it would be hard to leave this show without a smile.
Scotland on Sunday

A box of badges and sunshine soundtrack greet the audience, before the last dregs of cynicism are brushed away by the lady herself. The cheerful Long has endearing energy.
The List

Shes undeniably special.
The Skinny *****

…Long can find the joy in the tiniest and most pointless of things. Its a rare comedy talent and one worth cherishing. Her Kindness and Exuberance are not to be missed.
Metro (Scotland) *****

…theres a lovable romantic sensibility here, reminiscent of Daniel Kitsons, but without the accompanying acidity…heartfelt and eccentric.
