Jo Neary & Friends has been running in Brighton for a few years, at Komedia and now back at it’s original home – The Caroline Of Brunswick, featuring regular acts Dyball & Kerr, Phil Jerrod and George Egg, hosted by Joanna and all trying out new material. The company occasionally collaborates in ludicruous flash mobs such as the Folk Singers Revolt and a Burlesque Night That Should Have Been Postponed. The company is thrilled to be venturing into Eastbourne, after enjoying some success in it’s previous incarnation ‘that comedy Thing’ at The Lamb Inn, High Street, in which Jo offered audience an intriguing mix of alternative comedy, music and dance.
