Loud and abrasive all-girl Patti Smith-esque punk-rock action. The Smears play hard and straight, brandishing raw and powerful pop-punk anthems and a girl-gang swagger not to be messed with.

Described as part Joyce Grenfell, part Morwenna Banks and two parts insane, Jo has received critical acclaim for her brilliant one woman show Pan's Person, in which she creates a whole host of characters from a 1940's housewife parodying Celia Johnson in Brief Encounter, to Mr Timkins the family cat! Jo's trademark character observations, astute social commentary and songs have established her as one of the UK's finest character comediennes. 'Superbly funny' (The Guardian) 'Hilarious off-kilter talent' (The Sunday Telegraph).

'Naturally funny' (Sarah Millican) 'A great emcee, quick witted, and adept at handling large rooms' (Gary Delaney) 'Lou Conran, pretty much one of the most confident and playful comperes we’ve seen recently, commanding a packed and raucous sell-out night with ease' (Latest7 magazine) '... with a cracking stage presence and good material…thoroughly engaging, you tell she has the talent' (Frog & Bucket) 'Louise is a naturally funny comic, with a warm and dotty stage presence that helps endear her to an audience. If she can build on the great foundations she has laid, she's sure to have a good future ahead of her. Witty, naughty but most of all good fun, with a touch of the Victoria Wood about her' (Toby Hadoke, XS Malarkey).
