Jess Thom has Tourettes, a condition that makes her say biscuit 16,000 times a day. Her unusual neurology gives her a unique perspective on life; one shes about to unleash on the world.
This two-woman show weaves comedy, puppetry, singing, and incredible tics to explore spontaneity, creativity, disability, and things you never knew would make you laugh. Geranium bashing may or may not feature no two shows can ever be the same. Jess is neurologically incapable of staying on script, and thats when the fun begins.
Total Theatre Award Winner 2014

All performances are relaxed. This means youre welcome to move around and make noise during the show. This adds a whole new dimension, which is why Touretteshero likes to call it Extra Live.
