Where: The Old Joint Stock, 4 Temple Row West, Birminghm, B2 5NY
What is it?
Join Birmingham’s own Gemma Goggin at the Old Joint Stock Theatre. Following her successful Edinburgh debut with the one woman stand-up show Get Laid or Die Trying at the Gilded Balloon (directed by Logan Murray), she is currently preparing her new show Gemma Goggin: Double G, which will preview at the OJST on Wednesday 20th July.
Originally from Birmingham, the daughter of two fairly repressed Irish Catholics, Gemma has sought to talk about the things we don’t like to talk about – a little inappropriate, a little filthy on occasion, and a whole lot of laughter along the way.
Gemma entered the world of stand up in 2008 after deciding a challenge was in order. It was that or a sky dive. But she feared the sky dive might render her incapable of standing up ever again, so comedy won the day. She headed to the bright lights of London aged 18, and following an English Degree at Kings College, she trained as an actress and singer at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
