BAFTA award winning comedy legend, Jo Brand hosts the Best of the NATYS, a magnificent bill with seven of the top acts from the NATYS: New Variety’s New Act of the Year 2012.
Over the years, Jo Brand has become the regular host of the Best of the NATYS and always makes space in her busy schedule for the show, to support and encourage the best new comedy talent breaking through into live entertainment.
