“Likeable and fun, the cheeky side to her personality always shines through the nonsense, she is a very energetic and expressive performer, her material always sounds truly “felt” as well as being very funny. An act that truly makes you understand that laughter is a combination of joy and fear, Fantastic!” – Creative Cows Comedy
“Multi-talented Jo Romero! Her stage presence is natural, her wit is quick and the humour is enjoyable by anyone and everyone.
