ABOUT THE SHOW

The Cool Mum is a hilarious comedy show for teens to Boomers!

You can become cool – the Jo Ghastly way (seriously, Jo is 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.

Chosen to have fur babies? This show will validate your choice to never have children.

The Cool Mum is an award-winning parody of a personal development seminar which sold out around New Zealand and at Adelaide Fringe with 5-star reviews.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jo is a New Zealand based comedian, improviser, and actor. By day she works as a psychiatrist, author, and film producer. Jo wonders why she is often tired.

Jo also performs regularly with improvisation troupe Impulse Theatre. Screen appearances include feature film “The Stolen” and TVNZ’s “Adam and Eve Show”.
