Hi, welcome, this is the website of me (Joanna Neary) where you’ll find out about my comedy and illustration.

For my comedy shows I write scripts and ad-lib in character. I have between 6 to 15 different characters in one show and aim to be very playful and silly.

I often do character dance routines and I love to do things that people haven’t done onstage before.

You might catch me on Radio 4 soon and I also have a podcast called Wife On Earth, which stars my Celia Brief Encounters-inspired housewife character.

For 2021-2022 I’m touring live comedy shows. These are ‘Lord God’, ‘Wife On Earth – The Tour’ and another written by and performed with Ben Moor called ‘BookTalkBookTalkBook’ and a children’s show called ‘Stinky McFish’ from winter 2021.

I grew up in Cornwall and now live in East Sussex.

I like playing cricket, drawing and making my son laugh by pretending to be a passionate Irish woman based on my nana, who fluctuates between being pleased and annoyed. If you bump into me, I can show you what I mean.
