Dukes: Josie Long Explores Activism in 'Something Better'

Chris Satori


If you’re looking for Something Better to do on March 14, look no further than The Dukes. For that’s when Josie Long will be making a welcome return to the Lancaster theatre as part of its spring comedy season.

Her new show – Something Better -  is all about optimism and hopefulness, about looking for people and finding things to look up to, and wanting more from life.

Josie has also been busy interviewing activists about what they do and why,  so the show will be about politics and making things happen as well as featuring some silly and fun bits too.

Something Better follows the international sell-out success of Josie’s previous show Cara Josephine and is her eighth solo stand-up tour.

Josie also appears regularly on radio and television. She presents Radio 4’s popular documentary series Short Cuts which is one of the top downloaded podcasts and stars in Radio 4’s Romance and Adventure and All of the Planet’s Wonders.

Tickets for Something Better are priced £14/£12 concessions. For more information and to book, ring The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or check

Comedy at The Dukes is recommended for anyone aged 16 plus.

Others appearing this spring at the Dukes are: Kriss Foster (February 25); Tony Law (March 18); Sara Pascoe (April 6); Jonny And The Baptists( April 12); Bridget Christie (April 27) and Katy Brand (May 27).
