a pleasing depth to her self-effacing gags
Steve Bennett, Chortle
Stoke-on-Trent lass Jo D’Arcy may have escaped the classroom but her self-effacing tales of teaching Spanish to high school students continue to haunt her. In recent years, Jo has added to her success in numerous competitions to become a sought after act on the UK comedy circuit – playing at the likes of The Stand, The Glee, Riproar and The Comedy Cafe (amongst many others).
D’Arcy certainly had funny bones and a clownish sensibility, a little like a female Rik Mayall at times … could well go places
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
In 2014, Jo won Southport New Comedian of the Year and made it to the semi finals of So You Think You’re Funny. In 2015, she made it to the finals of the Leicester Square New Comedian, Hobgoblin Comedy Awards, Hilarity Bites New Comedians of the Year and the Breaking Talent Award at Birmingham Comedy Festival.
