"Okay I'm sorry but I don't want to have a meal. I want to talk and find out a bit more about you and ideally have sex. Or maybe not full sex but—I need to be home by 11 p. m."


From actress, comedian, writer and doodler Jessie Cave, Sunrise is an honest, tender-hearted and uproariously funny story about crying in the woods, sexual accidents, Harry Potter conventions and Instagram espionage—but also about motherhood and trying to get stuff done.

This published edition also includes dozens of full-colour, never-before-seen doodles by Jessie. She's very happy to (over)share it with you.

Sunrise was performed as a critically acclaimed live show at Soho Theatre, London, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and on tour around the UK, and was produced by Soho Theatre.


"Devastatingly honest, wickedly funny… Sunrise pitches us right into Cave's life, and her head. " —Guardian

"An exquisite show from one of the more creative minds in comedy today… It is painfully funny, hilariously sad and makes oversharing a thing of comic genius. There is no corner of Jessie's life into which her blindingly honest comic light does not shine. " —Scotsman

"Not everyone can make heartbreak this entertaining… it's the little details that make this so special—revealing all the things she's secretly thinking, while we either empathise or wince in recognition. So open, so honest, so inspirational. " —ThreeWeeks

"An emotionally raw hour of confessional comedy that is unstoppably amusing as well as compellingly complex… crammed full of telling details that are amusing, or painful, or more likely both at once, this is comic storytelling of the highest order. " —The Times
