"Deliciously cruel…the best antidote to mewling rugrats."
"Proved once again that female comics don't take it lying down…a genuinely great act."
"Plenty of attitude and a good ear for a punchline."
Since bursting onto the scene in March 2002, Jojo Sutherland has climbed the comedy ladder at an alarming pace. She regularly plays at comedy clubs around the UK and worldwide and is also in great demand for corporate gigs.
Jojo has supported many comics on tour including Jenny Éclair, US Comic Louis Ramey, 4 Poofs and a Piano and Tom Stade and has recently been asked to support Jonathan Pie on his upcoming tour.
She is also one of the few women to go to military bases to entertain the troops.
As a regular at The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh and Glasgow, she alternates between her regular set and compering. Her “healthy neglect” approach to parenting forms the backbone to her material interspersed with everyday grievances and motherly advice.
This charismatic mother of four goes to great lengths to glean material, the most extreme example being her starring role in Channel 4’s award winning series Wife Swap, an experience that not only features in her stand-up with hysterical results but has been made into a full length show called Wife Idol – The Rivals which she has written and performs with her own theatre company The One Handed Women and was a huge success at the Edinburgh Festival.
As an accomplished actress Jojo frequently appears on stage and undertakes work from a variety of fields including radio presenting and improvisational forum theatre, she has also appeared in several short films.
Jojo was a finalist in the inaugural Funny Women Comedy Awards and was part of two world record breaking events – Stand Up 150 and One Big Laugh.
Jojo is also a regular contributor for BBC Radio Scotland’s Fred MacAulay Show and co-wrote and performed in the sketch show The Gates.
