Jo Ghastly – Cancer & Cartwheels

8:00PM, 26 JANUARY, 2024

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.

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

January 26
