🎭 Ed Fringe 2018: Rosie Jones — Fifteen Minutes
Rosie has cerebral palsy, a disability with so many syllables she's starting to feel like it's a bit of a piss take...
ROSIE JONES. 15 FIFTEEN MINUTES.
When Rosie Jones was born she didn’t breathe for fifteen whole minutes.
This resulted in her cerebral palsy — a disability with so many syllables Rosie feels like it’s a little bit of a piss take.
In a matter of DAYS I am sauntering up to Edinburgh with my debut show FIFTEEN MINUTES. I’m so proud of it and I’m so proud of this smashing poster.— Rosie Jones (@josierones) July 26, 2018

At school she was never bullied, meaning she never got to use that comeback — until now, that is.
Rosie reckons that had those first 15 minutes of her life been different, non-disabled her would be a bit of a prick, and would probably use the disabled toilet at work to take her poos.
Oh and on top of all of that, Rosie's a bit gay and a bit pissed off at this (it’s hard enough for her to tick one box, never mind two) and so, she tells the audience her coming out story...

HOLY MOLY! I'm only bloody doing my first hour show! Stop arsing around and just treat yourself to a ticket: https://t.co/AjJ3RwZ50C.
A funny and clever take on life as she experiences it, this show is all about Rosie — and not even Christmas or Ryan Gosling can get in the way.
She might piss herself and so might you
