Monkey Barrel Comedy (MB3)
Plosive Live in association with Ebdon Management presents...
Jessica Fostekew: Mettle
A brand new stand-up show about passion, pace and purpose from the critically-acclaimed star of BBC’s QI, Live at the Apollo and C4’s Travel Man.
Jess’ son’s joined a cult AND her cat’s learnt to talk – but despite all that she’s fine, actually. In fact she’s hurtling faster and hustling harder than ever for the things that she wants and needs.
Her last show Wench played a sold-out Edinburgh Fringe run and UK tour and is available now as a special. Her previous show Hench was nominated for Best Show at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards and won Best Show at the Chortle Awards where Jess also won Best Act. It’s available to stream now on Amazon Prime.
Jess is a regular co-host of The Guilty Feminist podcast, host and creator of her own podcast about eating, Hoovering, and star and writer of BBC Radio 4’s Sturdy Girl Club. Jess has also appeared in the award-winning sitcom Motherland and most recently hugely-acclaimed feature film Scrapper which won the Grand Jury prize at the Sundance festival.
She’s also been on all your favourite panel shows from Celebrity Pointless to House of Games.

Monkey Barrel Comedy is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Our rooms are located at the top end of Blair Street, just off the Royal Mile and can be easily accessed by Bus and Taxi from South Bridge or by foot from either Cowgate or the High Street.
As with many venues in the traditional and historical Old Town, some of our spaces have accessibility limitations. Please contact us in advance (via email to our Box Office at email@example.com) if you have any access requirements, so we can advise on the options available.
MB1 is at ground level and can be accessed via most wheelchairs with some adjustments made for you outside the venue. Please let us know in advance of buying a ticket (via the Box Office) so we can confirm and be prepared for your arrival. Because of the physical changes required outside of the venue, we cannot guarantee entry unless we are notified in advance.
MB3 and MB4 are accessed via a series of steps. If you are able to move over short distances, our team can assist and looking after any mobility equipment.
