Los Angeles born Jovanka started her career in theatre, moved to improv and then to Stand Up comedy and has been performing comedy around the US for the last 5 years.
Blond, attractive and American - she has a lot of comedy hurdles to get over but her easy and approachable style gets cynical Brits on her side with warm, intelligent material packed full of punchlines. She is a confident and bright performer who delights in making us squirm at her Americanism, then squirms with us!
"A very very impressive
act ... grace and charm and some excellent one-liners" - BBC Radio London
