Raunchy comedienne, very, very funny London Evening Standard
In the last four years Jojo Smith has gone from open spot to British late-night television star (Funny Business) to global fame on the internet and to international comedy performer. Not bad going for someone who previously had never stood on a stage in her life.
From South Africa to the Edinburgh Festival to the Sydney Comedy Festival she delights comedy goers all over the world with her unique brand of punchy, in your face, no holds barred comedy.
Jojo gigs extensively around the UK and can be seen on a weekly basis on the top comedy circuit. Other live work has included a sell-out UK tour supporting Craig Charles, where she quickly got used to playing thousand-seater halls.
For the past two years, the Edinburgh Festival saw Jojo working for BBC Scotlands network programme, Edinburgh Nights as Comedy Consultant.
During the 40 episodes of Funny Business which she wrote and presented Jojo made a name for herself as a chat show host of the old school. That is, she let her guests do the talking everyone form Brian Conley to Lee Evans, Craig Charles to Jimmy Cricket, Jo Brand to Joe Pasquale, and a million more in between.
During the last Comic Relief she made history by becoming one of the first stand-ups to perform on the internet and is now apparently massive in Rumania!
Television appearances include Jo Brand Through the Cakehole (Channel X for Channel 4), Central Weekend (Central/Carlton), Late and Loud (Carlton), as well as Thursday Night Live (Carlton), Elvis Has Just Left The Building (Granada), Is That It? (Anglia) and Esther (BBC).
Radio credits include John Shuttleworth And Friends (Radio 1), Fi Glover, Mark Lamarr, Pete Curran and Jeremy Nicholas (all GLR), The Julie Goodyear Show (Talk Radio) and The Treatment (Radio 5 Live)
Its well worth seeking out Funny Business in the early hours on ITV. Jojo Smith pulls off the difficult task of analysing comedy, while being funny at the same time Martin Kelner, Daily Mail
