A short comedy film ‘Spinster’  she wrote, directed and performed, as her character Mary Magdalene, won the ‘London-Worldwide Comedy Festival’s Best Shorter Short’ in 2018.

She has written, produced and performed five, four star, Edinburgh Festival shows and was a ‘So You Think That’s Funny?’ Finalist.

Jo’s a big hit with the kids too. Her children’s books ‘Standing on Custard’,  ‘A Squirrel’s Tail’ and ‘Molly, Chip and the Chair’, are available via www.standingoncustard.com 

She also loves radio and podcasts she co-presented on Fubar with Lucy Porter, JLC and Mark Dolan. She likes nothing more than chewing the fat as a guest too and has been heard on the radio waves as a guest on Geoff Lloyd’s Absolute Radio show and his podcast Reasons to be Cheerful with Ed Miliband.
