A true road comedian : Punching Up 2022 – Chortle
JoJo Sutherland gives up her home of 27 years to tour the UK in a motorhome
Comedian JoJo Sutherland is leaving her home of 27 years to live a fully nomadic life, buying a motorhome to tour comedy venues around the UK.
She moved to South Queensferry, near Edinburgh in 1995 with her two youngest children – and married twice and gave birth another twice while living there.
Her mother and father died in the town and she ran a local comedy night for ten years – but after becoming single for the first time in 23 years has decided to up sticks ‘on an exciting adventure to nowhere’.
The 56-year-old says: ‘There has never been a better time to change the way I live.
‘I've been telling people for months that I'm off to live in a motorhome, and I couldn't be more excited. I'm single for the first time in 30 years, all my kids have left home and I am doing the job I love all over the UK.
‘Instead of travelling to cities to then come back home, I can always be on the move forward.
‘Obviously South Queensferry will always have a place in my heart, and I can't wait to bring the motorhome here next summer. This is the place that I was able to bring life into the world, and also say goodbye to my Mum and Dad.
"It has been the home of births, deaths, my own near death experience when I had a brain haemorrhage as well as marriages and divorces. It'll be quite the wrench to leave, but off I go on my adventure to nowhere. No matter what, I'll always be moving forward – first stop Manchester.’
The comic moves out of her home tomorrow, living with friends and family around the UK before she heading off to Australia for a three-month tour of the festivals down under in early 2023, then taking up her new lifestyle.
