‘Passionate, smart, hilarious.’ ★★★★ Guardian

South Park and Brass Eye writer Jane Bussmann’s foul-mouthed, funny and frightening parody lecture on Britain and Africa.

Who puts starving Africans on our TV screens when Africa is booming? When did poverty become an industry that needs poverty to stay in business? Why are people flying business class and living in mansions to help the poor?

In the show that blew the roof off the Sydney Opera House, Jane takes us on a journey through Africa, trying to find out why being decent attracts wankers.

Jane is an award-winning comedy writer, author and newspaper columnist who has written for over fifty TV shows including South Park, Smack the Pony and Brass Eye. She was ‘named and shamed’ in the News of the World as one of the writers behind Brass Eye Special: Paedophilia, the most complained-about program in British television history.

She has been a columnist for The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, Red and The Face and has interviewed Hollywood celebrities for Glamour, Marie Claire and the Sunday Times.

The Worst Date Ever, her book about Hollywood, charities and the international response to Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army was Sunday Times Pick of the Week and Evening Standard Pick of the Year,

Her Edinburgh show Bussmann’s Holiday, based on the book, has packed out theatres from Los Angeles to Nairobi.

Bono & Geldof are C*nts is written by Jane Bussmann with Naisola Grimwood.

Jane currently lives in Mombasa, Kenya.

‘One of the most passionate, smart, hilarious hours on the Fringe, packed with so many absurd one-liners that it’s impossible to stop laughing, even as your brain buzzes with fury at the story she relates… She can spin twisted, brilliant gags out of the unlikeliest of material.’
★★★★ Guardian

‘I found myself convulsed with sinus-clearing snorts of astonished laughter… This potty-mouthed, sarcastic, self-deprecating female journalist with no track record on Africa and a ludicrously inappropriate CV has succeeded where scores of doughty, better-qualified males routinely come a cropper.’
The Spectator

‘So funny you almost feel guilty laughing.’

‘Funnier than Scoop.’
Graeme Garden

‘Genuinely confusing to rapists.’
Chris Morris

‘Very funny. Jane’s got a death wish.’
