Nelson Fringe: The Cool Mum

Friday 7th-Saturday 8th May 2021

After winning Best Solo Show and Audience Favourite at Nelson (Digital) Fringe 2020, we’re bringing her back for real. The Cool Mum is an award-winning celebrity personal development seminar with Jo Ghastly as a self-proclaimed ‘Cool Mum’. She’ll help you become the coolest of cool parents (seriously, she’s on TikTok so you know she’s got the credentials). No kids of your own? Don’t worry, Jo will teach you how to unlock the inner cool potential of your own parents (and maybe validate your choice to never have children...).

Jo is a Christchurch based comedian, improviser and actor. She was nominated as
Breakthrough Comedian at the 2020 NZ Comedy Guild Awards.

“Hilarious” – Theatreview
“Brilliant...delivers punchlines to maximal effect” – Wellington Regional News
The show is recommended R13 (mild adult themes)
Nelson Fringe Festival is using 2021 as a year to re-group, re-energise and create building blocks for the future, by thinking a bit laterally, a bit sideways, and a bit backwards. It’s part of the constant challenge of figuring what being a Fringe is all about.
