I'm Jo, a comedian and MC from Stoke-on-Trent. I've been doing this for nearly five years now and it's wonderful!
I've reached the top of some of the UK's most prestigious comedy competitions (Leicester Square, Laughing Horse, Hobgoblin, Funny Women, Breaking Talent Award) and received lovely praise from comedy reviewers and top comedy clubs:
"D'Arcy certainly has funny bones and a clownish sensibility" - Bruce Dessau, Beyond a Joke
"Her energy and likeability go a long way. A formidable performance, in turns affable and silly" - Steve Bennett, Chortle
"Great skill and very visual - excellent"
"Excellent timing with a great presence and persona" "Personality-wise she is wonderful and she kept to time" - The Stand Comedy Clubs
I can entertain, write speeches, create readings for special occasions, anything you need, give me a shout and I'll see what I can do for you. I have written poems and readings for several weddings taking details about your lives and how you met to tailor something really special for you.
I am also a qualified teacher of English, Spanish and French with 10 years experience and can deliver bespoke educational and fun sessions to children of all ages (I have a full and up to date DBS) in both educational and social settings.
If you need more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you create something fantastic!
My comedy covers working in schools, mental health, relationships and is largely autobiographical and story-based in nature.
For children, I deliver fun and unique ways of learning...or just plain old fun! I can work from children up to young adults and tailor the content accordingly.
Speaking: I am available for public speaking - either the writing or delivery, or both! If you want something life-affirming, political, on social commentary, relationships or you want something specific researching for such a speech, I can provide that for you.
