Cancer & Cartwheels: A show about life – The Old Lodge Theatre

January 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


A comedy show about cartwheels, cancer eviction, and Bad and Better wigs.

Jo was always good at cartwheels. It was her thing.  In 1981, Jo did a cart-wheel-a-thon for Telethon. She was that good.

In 2021, Jo was diagnosed with cancer.  Her right arm was significantly disabled. Would Jo be able to cartwheel again?
Laugh through the tough stuff with stand-up, skits, and songs about Jo’s victory over cancer and her cartwheeling ability.

Jo is an award-winning Ōtautahi-Christchurch based stand-up comedian, improvisor and MC. She is known best for her smash-hit comedy show Jo Ghastly: The Cool Mum which has sold out venues across New Zealand and Australia with great reviews:
★ ★ ★ ★ 1/2 “The room is filled with laughter…I would recommend to anyone who just wants to have a good laugh” – The Adelaide Show Podcast.

By day, Jo is psychiatrist and author Dr. Jo Prendergast. Her book for parents about teenage mental health When Life Sucks was released by Harper Collins in September 2023.

Doors open 7pm, Show starts 7.30pm

Tickets $25. Tickets available from Eventfinda: http://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2024/cancer-and-cartwheels/hokitika
