Jessie Cave: Sunrise

Following her first two sold out and critically liked shows, Jessie Cave returns with her third, over-sharing as she does best.

As seen in 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown and Black Mirror, Jessie Cave is an actress, illustrator and comedian. She is best known for her role as Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter film series.

She also appears as regular Heather in Sky One’s Trollied and drama credits include Call the Midwife for BBC 1 and Glue for Channel 4. Jessie’s YouTube channel Pindippy features comedy sketches and short films, including her web series, Chop Logic.

As a stand-up, Jessie had two sell-out runs of her 2012 Edinburgh show Bookworm and three sell-out runs of her critically-acclaimed second solo show, I Loved Her, both at the Soho Theatre.

“A unique comic talent. Think Lena Dunham’s Girls but with far more self deprecation and jokes.”
The Independent ★★★★
“A disarmingly honest set….vivid, emotionally naked comedy.”
The Guardian ★★★★
“A glorious mix of honesty and naivety, clever and silly, sweet and dark.”
The Scotsman ★★★★
This is a past event
