Described by the Sunday Times as a ‘truly gifted stand-up’, Joanne has been taking Ireland’s comedy scene by storm with sell-out tours, hilarious chat show appearances, newspaper articles and a hit documentary.
She’s enjoyed sell-out Edinburgh runs with her stand-up shows Wine Tamer and The Prosecco Express and has toured Ireland with both shows. She also performed at the 3Arena in Dublin, alongside John Bishop, Michael McIntyre and Dara O Briain.
She recently shifted her focus internationally and is already making waves on the UK comedy scene with a sold-out Soho Theatre run under her belt and a regular contribution slot on the Sarah Brett show on BBC 5 Live.
The funny and insightful documentary, Baby Hater, was created, written and presented by Joanne and went on to be sold to 12 countries. Her first one-woman show Bite Me, a show about eating disorders, was nominated for multiple awards including Best Performer, Best Production and a First Fortnight award at the Dublin Fringe in 2016. Joanne performed Bite Me at the Vault Festival in 2019 where Lyn Gardner described her as ‘hilarious and brutal’.
Joanne’s slew of TV credits include co-hosting RTÉ 2’s flagship comedy show Republic of Telly, and appearing on The Blame Game (BBC Northern Ireland), Women on The Verge (UKTV), The Late Late Show (RTÉ One), The Tommy Tiernan Chat Show (RTÉ One), The Tonight Show (TV3), The Seven O’Clock Show (TV3) and The Commute (RTÉ). Her radio credits include BBC Radio 4’s A Good Read, BBC Radio 5 Live’s Sarah Brett show and a regular slot on 2FM’s Mack the Week. You can also catch her on the hit BBC podcast hosted by Russell Kane, Evil Genius, and Emma Gannon’s podcast CTRL, ALT, DELETE. She’s also starred on Comedy Central’s online series Comedian’s Solve World Problems.
