The Cool Mum


Repertory House

167 Esk Street, Invercargill

A comedy show for all ages which has sold out around New Zealand!

The Cool Mum is an award- winning parody of a celebrity personal development seminar.

Jo Ghastly’s expertise comes from being a self- proclaimed “Cool Mum”

Move over Nigel Latta, Jo Ghastly is bringing her world-class personal development seminar to Invercargill to help you become the coolest of cool parents (seriously, she on TikTok so you know she's got the credentials!).

Don't have any kids of your own? Don't worry, Jo will be teaching you how to unlock the inner cool potential of your own parents (and maybe validate your choice to never have children...).

The show is recommended R13 - mild adult themes

Jo has been nominated as Breakthrough Comedian at the 2020 NZ Comedy Guild Awards. The Cool Mum won Best Solo Show and Audience Favourite Show at Nelson Fringe Festival 2020.
