Rosie Wilby is a standup comedian, musician, broadcaster, and author based in London.

She’s performed at the Sydney Mardi Gras, The World Famous Comedy Store, BBC Radio 4, and the Glastonbury festival.

Rosie’s brand new project The Breakup Monologues, supported by Arts Council England, has launched as a podcast (recommended by Metro as one of the top 5 love and relationships podcasts) and blog.

Her first book is ‘Is Monogamy Dead? Rethinking Relationships in the early 21st Century.’ From Amazon:

“In early 2013, Rosie found herself at a crossroads with everything she’d ever believed about romantic relationships. When people asked, ‘who’s the love of your life?’ there was no simple answer. Did they mean her former flatmate who she’d experienced the most ecstatic, heady, yet ultimately doomed, fling with? Or did they mean the deep, lasting companionate partnerships that gave her a sense of belonging and family? Surely, most human beings need both. Mixing humour, heartache and science, Is Monogamy Dead? details Rosie’s very personal quest to find out why Western society is clinging to a concept that doesn’t work that well for some of us and is laden with ambiguous assumptions.”

In today’s episode of Humans in Love we talk standup comedy, the new book and podcast, coming out, the importance of community, breakup horror stories, and much more. Hope you dig.

    • Rosie’s first book, Is Monogamy Dead? (Amazon)
    • Rosie’s new podcast and blog, the Breakup Monologues
