Jo Romero

“…Lively and, frankly, a bit scary, a performer who brings a unique physical performance to her material.  Romero will surely be a force to be reckoned with.” - Chortle 2002

She’s likeable and fun, and the cheeky side to her personality always shines through the nonsense, Jo 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!
