Jill in the media

"Stand up for comic relief" BBC 1

Jill Edwards was the BBC's chosen Comedy Coach in the South for their Comic Relief project. Jill mentored Brighton's BBC Radio Sussex presenter Neil Pringle with individual comedy lessons, and appeared in BBC One's documentary about the project "Stand-Up for Comic Relief."

BBC South East’s documentary "Comedy In Brighton" in 2008 featured Jill Edwards coaching BBC South East presenter Kaddy Lee-Preston in a private comedy class to write and perform her own stand-up comedy set. Kaddy performed at Jill's monthly comedy club Comic Boom at Brighton's Komedia to plenty of laughs – not just from Jill.
