Joanne is a storyteller and comic who is proud to say she's worked in almost every genre of Canadian Comedy. As a television writer she's written for This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Baroness von Sketch Show and most recently was scouring the CBC archives for their new music documentary show, From the Vaults.
In the live Canadian arts scene, she's performed stand-up across Canada as well as written and performed in three solo shows. Her third, and most recent, She Grew Funny, premiered to sold-out audiences at the 2017 Toronto Fringe Festival, where it was Factory Theatre Studio Patron’s Pick, and one of Now Magazine’s Outstanding New Plays. She's the proud winner of a Writer's Guild of Canada award and her second one-woman show, Any Second Now was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award.
