The Cool Mum : Dunedin Fringe Festival

The Cool Mum

Even You Can Become Cool- The Jo Ghastly Way!

See tickets below

WINNER Best Solo Show and Audience Favourite Show- Nelson Fringe 2020.

Move over Nigel Latta, Jo Ghastly is bringing her world-class personal development seminar to Dunedin to help you become the coolest of cool parents (seriously, she on TikTok so you know she's got the credentials!). Don't have any kids of your own? Don't worry, Jo will be teaching you how to unlock the inner cool potential of your own parents (and maybe validate your choice to never have children...).

Jo is a Christchurch based comedian, improviser and actor. 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.
