Off-the-wall Character Comedy: Paul Levy talks to Joanna Neary about Joanna Neary Does Animals and Men

Over the years Joanna Neary has created and played a wide range of original and often bizarre characters, achieving a reputation as one of our finest and unique comedians. She plays to packed houses and has, in recent years, made a name for herself in TV and radio comedy as well. This year she is doing animals and men!

Her new fringe show, “Joanna Neary Does Animals and Men” is described as follows “Reacting to political turmoil, class struggles and bothersome intrusive thoughts, Neary attempts escapist talent show Opportunity Knockers. With women, animals and men. As a baby, Joanna was dropped on her head and stolen from outside Coventry Library. She started work aged twelve, picking moss on Bodmin Moor for a pervert. She avoided getting beaten up by pretending to be French, and dislikes the fashion for bags that look like bums. At Polytechnic, Joanna paid by cheque for a Pot Noodle.” In this interview she talks about her creative process and what lies up ahead.
