About

Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that makes her say 'biscuit' 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life; one she's about to unleash on the world. 

This two-woman show weaves comedy, puppetry, singing, and incredible tics to explore spontaneity, creativity, disability, and things you never knew would make you laugh. Geranium bashing may or may not feature - no two shows can ever be the same. 
 
Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, and that's when the fun begins.
