What comes across most strongly at one of Jo Brand's gigs is the sheer warmth of the relationship between the performer and her audience - a fact that may surprise people who believe everything they read in the popular press about the former nurse.

"In the tabloids, I'm given this `horrible old lesbian harridan' tag," Brand sighs. "I hope people who come to see me will realise that I'm not a ball-crunching radical feminist who wants to kill everyone."

See the real, likeable Jo Brand for yourself at Princes Hall, Aldershot (01252 329155) on Tuesday at 8pm.
