Previous career highlights include being a Canterbury 3ZB cheerleader last century and being
typecast on stage and screen as everyone’s bitchy mother. Comedy provides welcome relief from peri-menopausal mood swings and the tortures of parenting teenagers.


Jo’s solo comedy show “The Cool Mum” won Best Solo Show and Audience Favourite Show at the Nelson Fringe Festival 2020. Jo was recently nominated for Breakthrough Comedian (S.I.) at The NZ Comedy Guild Awards. Jo regularly travels around New Zealand performing comedy.
