Standing Still by Joana Joy: vibeologist, socially-conscious comedian

Evolution Theatre Company, 75 Disraeli Street, Gisborne 4010, New Zealand
About the event
STANDING STILL is a brand-new stand up comedy show by seasoned comic, ex-professional 'dancer dancer' and cabaret dynamo Joana Joy (Banana Jolie). Having sold out in Raglan and thrilled audiences in a random tent in Hunterville, she is excited to bring it to Tairāwhiti!
Witty, vibrant and chortle inducing comedy that shines light on the human experience, from a socially conscious comedian.
Drawing upon her experiences as a psychology and philosophy graduate, Joana's material ranges from bits about being a mature age student, the history of dust, idioms rewritten, how to not smoke and have clean habits, meditation, tidying up, therapy and sibling dynamics.
Having done shows in Wellington, Whanganui, Foxton Beach, Auckland, Adelaide and Melbourne, standing still may prove to be quite the challenge for this comedic star on the rise. She is very excited to bring this show in all it's rawness and newness, plus insights from her colossal summer tour to the East Coast.
