BBC Radio 4 regular, Radio Diva host and award-winning comedian Rosie Wilby poignantly interweaves comedy, memoir, breakup emails and Richard Hawley music to investigate the aftermath of a separation in a post-Gwyneth world. The Conscious Uncoupling was commissioned by London's Southbank Centre for Festival of Love 2016 and was shortlisted, via public vote, for Funny Women Best Show 2016.
Rosie has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Summer Nights, Four Thought, Midweek, The Human Zoo and Woman’s Hour and at festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Larmer Tree and Latitude. She was a finalist at Funny Women 2006 and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 and she’s been touring award-winning solo shows and steadily building a word-of-mouth army of fans ever since.
Her writing has been published in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Independent, New Statesman and more. Her first book Is Monogamy Dead will be published by Accent Press in July 2017 and follows her TEDx talk of the same name. She was a runner up in the 2014 Mslexia memoir competition and the only UK writer selected for the 2016 LAMBDA writers' retreat at the University of Southern California.
She co-hosts Radio Diva on Resonance FM alongside Heather Peace and has presented for BBC Sussex and Surrey. Her award-winning show The Science Of Sex was programmed by New York City’s Fresh Fruit Festival 2013. She has also performed in Los Angeles and at Sydney Mardi Gras.
