Described by the Sunday Times as a ‘truly gifted stand-up’, Joanne has been taking Ireland and the UK’s comedy scene by storm, enjoying sell-out Edinburgh runs with her stand-up shows Wine Tamer and The Prosecco Express. Both shows have toured in Ireland, and she has sold out over 50 nights at Vicar Street in Dublin, four nights at the London Palladium, and three nights at London’s Eventim Apollo.
She is the cohost of the hugely popular podcast My Therapist Ghosted Me, alongside her best friend Vogue Williams, which has over a million downloads a week.
Joanne created, wrote and presented the funny and insightful documentary Baby Hater which was broadcast in Ireland for TV3. Her first one woman show, Bite Me, a show about eating disorders, was nominated for multiple awards at the Dublin Fringe in 2016. She went on to perform Bite Me at the Vault Festival in 2019 where Lyn Gardner described her as ‘hilarious and brutal’.
Joanne’s numerous TV credits include ITV’s The Jonathan Ross Show and Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club, Comedy Central’s Guessable and Comedians Solve World Problems, BBC’s Michael McIntyre’s The Wheel, Richard Osman’s House of Games, Channel 4’s The Big Fat Quiz of Everything, and Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back.
She has been a guest on various radio shows including BBC Radio 4’s A Good Read, Radio 5 Live’s Sarah Brett Show, and also hit podcast Evil Genius.
In Ireland, she’s co-hosted RTÉ 2’s flagship comedy show Republic of Telly, and appeared 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), and Clear History (RTE).
