gentle, funny, kind, sensitive and a bit surprising. A class act - great comic

A clever and different show - some brilliantly acted character comedy which had me in stitches. Well worth seeing!

Loved this show. Joanna's quirky characters had me in stitches. Literally snorting and crying with laughter. Celia Johnson as her show host character is a stroke of genius. Loved it. Would definitely go and see her again.

My family and I came to see the show on 7th August. It was a wonderful experience and one of the best shows we’ve seen in many years of coming to the Fringe. Jo Neary is clearly a very intelligent person with an abundance of talent and a genuine gift for comedy. Her characters were beautifully observed, especially Celia, whose old-fashioned RP accent was an absolute joy as well as the material being superbly written and hilariously funny. Being able to listen to the brilliant ‘Wife On Earth’ podcasts since returning home has been an added bonus so the fun has continued beyond Edinburgh. The lovely, cool artwork is also a treat. Jo has it all!

A great show and a must see for all Fringe goers.

The show is a fast paced, packed hour which will have you laughing out loud. Joanna has a wide range of great characters that she rolls out effortlessly.

Thoroughly enjoyed by all.
